The Miracle Man
10 March 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

After osteopath Felix Aylmer cures his injured foot, Robert Beatty decides that's what he wants to be. When his landlord's daughter, Carol Raye, is told by doctors that she will never walk again, Beatty cures her -- months before he has completed his training. He quarrels with Aylmer and sets up practice without completing his training, and gets involved with Nova Pilbeam -- although he has married Miss Raye. Melodrama ensues.

For its first half, this movie looks like a tract for osteopathy and the gifted amateur. Once the melodrama begins, though, it becomes a much more standard sort of movie. There are some interesting bits; Beatty's curing of Miss Raye harks back to THE MIRACLE MAN. The actors are very good in their pig-headed portrayals, particularly Beatty and Miss Pilbeam, near the end of her career. She would retire the following year, following her second marriage.
