    Miracle in Soho Powell Pressburger Images Miracle in Soho 1957

    In a contemporary review, What's On in London called the film a "sentimental little fairy story...Peter Illing, as Papa, brings this coloured celluloid confection to life every time he comes on the screen, and Cyril Cusack, as the Salvationist postman, is very good, too. Of course, this is isn't really Soho at all, but I don't suppose that's going to worry anyone except a few fussy Sohoians"; while more recently, the Radio Times wrote, "Pressburger's script aims for the sort of semi-documentary tone that had become fashionable at the time, but this romance...needed a little local colour to buck it up, not grey sociological pronouncements. Christopher Challis's grim images of Soho have a certain historical value, but, amid a plethora of dodgy accents, neither John Gregson nor Belinda Lee even comes close to convincing"; and ithankyouarthur wrote, "With far grittier kitchen sinks just around the corner, the film looks back rather than forward but still has a cosy charm all of its own and the magic realist tone you would expect from its author and producer."
