Miracle of the Bells Available To Borrow on DVD and Blu-Ray; Features Numerous References to Wilkes-Barre and Nanticoke

The 1948 classic film The Miracle of the Bells, starring Fred MacMurray, (Alida) Valli and Frank Sinatra, is available for the first time on DVD and Blu-Ray.  The movie was partly filmed in Wilkes-Barre and Glen Lyon, PA (it also features several reference to both places, as well as Nanticoke). 

Synopsis: Granting her final request, a Hollywood press agent brings the dead body of an actress, who died after making her first and only film, back to her hometown of Coal Town ("near Wilkes-Barre," according to the film) for burial. To arouse public interest, and to get the reluctant studio head to release the film, he asks all the local churches to ring their bells for three days.

Miracle of the Bells is available to borrow from Albright Memorial Library on both DVD and Blu Ray. Click on either link for more information; you may place a hold on the DVD.
