The Man Who Could Work Miracles
Based on a short story by H.G. Wells, the film offers a light-hearted exploration of the ethical and social implications using the power to work miracles entail. Actor Roland Young’s Fotheringay has the same sweet-natured haplessness that delighted fans of his character Cosmo Topper in "Topper" (1937), "Topper Takes a Trip" (1939), and "Topper Returns" (1940). His lengthy film credits include "And Then There Were None" (1945), which has also been featured on UEN SciFi Friday.
