      Tamara K I just discovered this film. One of the sweetest, saddest movies I have seen in ages. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review Audience Member Last night I watched this film from 1956, starring Jane Wyman and Van Johnson. It started out delightfully and midway it lost it's footing, and turned into a vacuous, soap opera. However, Jane Wyman gives a lovely performance as a plain New York secretary who falls in love with a soldier who is sent to war and doesn't come back. From there to the end is where it goes wrong. I love a good tearjerker, but this missed the cut. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member a real weepie i cried throughout as a lonely woman (jane wyman) meets a GI falls in love only to have him killed in WWII so sad. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member It's quite sad to see that this has only a 19% want to see it rating on here, and absolutely no Flixster user ratings or reviews. As the first person to leave a review, I'd like to say that the film is only 'sentimental' in the truly positive sense, Miracle in the Rain being truly romantic and heart-felt. The performances are judged just right, with Van Johnson being genuinely likeable and Jane Wyman being very sweet. It's a pre-cursor to tear-jerkers such as Sleepless in Seattle and deserves not to be completely forgotten. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member This is an old favorite classic of mine. New York looks so lovely in this film and Van Johnson and Jane Wyman together are wonderful. Fun to see such a young Alan King and Arte Johnson too. A very schmaltzy movie - but I enjoy a little schmaltz once in a while. A sentimental favorite.
