Roland Young stars in H.G. Wells' light-hearted comedy about what happens when some bored celestials decide to give "an ordinary little fellow" the power to work miracles - just to see what he will do with it. George, a draper's assistant, is suddenly endowed with the power to work miracles, but when he still can't win the love of Ada, he slowly begins to realize that he has omnipotence over everything except the human mind. Soon others become aware of his power and it seems that everyone can think of ways to use his gift to their own advantage. This is undoubtedly the best film adaptation by H.G. Wells of his own work. The Man Who Could Work Miracles is a wise, funny and humane commentary on the human psyche, a film that can be enjoyed many times and still seem fresh with each viewing. - Undoubtedly the best film adaptation by H.G. Wells' work!
