Happy Friday, my friends. Friday is the perfect day
to kick off my Magical Movies for October. For three
Fridays in a row, I'll be sharing movies that have a
magical feel to them.
This Friday's movies is a lovely romantic gem that I found
via Warner Instant Archive. You pay 9.99 a month
and get to watch unlimited movies. It is filled with
a slew of classic movies that I love.
Miracle in The Rain (1956) stars Jane Wyman and
Van Johnson. Jane is Ruth Wood, a lonely office worker
and dutiful daughter who lives a quiet life. On a rainy
afternoon she meets Van, a lively soldier named
Art Hugenon, who charms his way into Ruth's life.
Before you know it, Ruth and Art are falling in love.

being sent abroad. The two promise to keep in touch

shows Jane and Van's first meeting.
Miracle in The Rain goes on my personal remake list.
A lovely film that reinforces the power of love against
