The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima

Synopsis: In 1917, three shepherd children living just outside Fatima, Portugal have visions of a lovely lady in a cloud. The anticlerical government wishes to squelch the Church; reports of religious experiences are cause for serious concern. Yet the children stand by their story, and the message of peace and hope the Lady brings. In the last vision, attended by thousands of people, the Lady proves her reality with a spectacular miracle that is seen by everyone present. Based on actual events at Fatima in the summer of 1917.

Tsk, tsk.

Oh, no, no.

The orchard belongs

to a friend of mine.

And he had told me

to help myself.

But his men didn't know that.

So they set the dogs on me.

Seven big mastiffs

leaping at my throat

with blood in their eyes.

And there I was, all alone.

And with my bare hands...

I fought them.

Poor dogs.

They'll never leap again.

You killed them?


All except the biggest one.

He laid on his back

and cried like a baby--


--so I spared him.

You tell such lovely stories,


but I know they're not true.

You'd better ask Father Ferreira

to forgive you.

Oh, no.

No priest for Hugo.

Why not?

Oh, it's all right

to go to church

and meditate on your sins

and beg forgiveness

and swear that you'll

never commit them again.

That's fine for little girls,

but not for

a big fellow like me.

Don't you believe in God?

Let's say, uh,

that God doesn't believe in me.

Now, go on home.

Goodbye. Bye.

Bye, Hugo.




Good morning, Father.

Oh, hello, Hugo.

Oh, Father? I, um...

I have a little business

that takes me to Ourm today.

And I thought perhaps

if you would want me

to get some good wine

for the altar,

I know where I can get it

very cheap.

No, thank you.

Sorry, Father.

Oh, uh...

Just a moment.


an educated man, Hugo.

You come of a good family

in Lisbon, a pious family.

Why don't you come back

to the Church?

I've thought about it,

Father, and I, uh...

I may.

If you'll let me

take up the collections.






Give me back my apron!

Don't take that

and get it dirty.


Yeah, come on.

Stop him.

Charge me, touro. Try it.

I'll have you--

My apron!

Like Hugo when he fought

the seven bulls.

Come back with it,

Crane Wilbur

Crane Wilbur (November 17, 1886 – October 18, 1973) was an American writer, actor and director for stage, radio and screen. He was born in Athens, New York. Wilbur is best remembered for playing Harry Marvin in The Perils of Pauline. He died in Toluca Lake, California.He was a prolific writer and director of at least 67 films from the silent era into the sound era, but it was as an actor that he found lasting recognition, particularly playing opposite Pearl White in the iconoclastic serial The Perils of Pauline. He brought to the first motion pictures merry eyes, a great, thick crop of wavy, black hair and an athlete's interest in swimming and horseback riding. Twelve years of stage experience prepared him for his venture into the new art of silent motion pictures. He was one of the first to explore the techniques required to communicate through the wordless shadows of the movies. more…
