The narrative takes place in the 15th century, when Louis XI was at odds with Charles of Burgundy. The king's forces are attacked by the Burgundian troops and Beauvais must be defended until reinforcements can arrive. The defence of the city is led by Jeanne Hachette. There are realistic scenes in which wolves attack some of the opponents of Louis XI.

Production and Distribution

The film was produced by the Société des Films Historiques (Henri Dupuy-Mazuel) and distributed by the Société des Etablissements L. Gaumont. The première was at the Paris Opéra and was attended by the President of France, the Premier and many other distinguished persons.

In the USA it was distributed under the title The Miracle of the Wolves and in Germany under the title Das Wunder der Wölfe. In Spain it was known as El milagro de los lobos, and in Italy as Il Miracolo dei lupi.

In 1930 a sound version was produced.

In 1961 another film was produced with the same scenario and the same title (directed by André Hunebelle).


The film was recognised as a French equivalent of the American The Birth of a Nation (1915).

The film turned its eye on a moment of French glory, the late 15th century, when a sense of national unity had yet to be forged. In France it was the most popular film of 1924. It was highly praised by the intelligentsia in France, for its realism, but it was derisively treated by American critics. Later it was claimed as a spectacular production. It has a reputation as one of the highpoints of French silent cinema. It belongs to the best French tradition.
