Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Spain's contribution to the 1958 Brussels Film Festival was Los Jueves Milagro (Miracles of Thursday). The story is faintly reminiscent of such 1930s Hollywood films as Olsen and Johnson's Country Gentlemen. A group of clever businessman seek out a method to improve the tourist trade in a sleepy Spanish village. This they do by faking a Lourdes-style "miracle" at a local watering place. The scheme is bollixed up by a gangster who threatens to expose the fraud if he isn't given a piece of the action. The gangster's ultimate change of heart proves not so surprising when his true identity is revealed.
