  1. The photo of Bette as a nun seems to be a test shot for an early attempt – circa 1938 – at filming a version of The Miracle, a color production to be directed by Max Reinhardt with music by Erich Korngold. The movie was later made 20 years later with Carroll Baker and Roger Moore.

  2. Great info. Many thanks. I see on the IMDB entry for the 1959 film, The Miracle, it says Warner’s made a technicolour test of Bette for the role. If true, what rare footage that would be.

  3. Very interesting post of the photos above never before seen. Never knew The Miracle was planned some 20 years before final production. Thank you. Best regards.
