Miracle of Life was produced by theatre-chain manager Sam Cummins, who emulated entrepreneur Kroger Babb by screening the film for "sexually segregated" audience (men only one night, women only the next) and accompanying these showings with an "expert" lecturer and the distribution of pamphlets. Essentially a feature-length animated cartoon, the film details the creation of a human baby, from fertilization of the egg to the birth itself. There is nothing in the film that any intelligent adult of 1949 didn't know already, but by ballyhooing the film as "daring" and "forbidden," Cummins managed to triple the potential gross. When first shown in New York, Miracle of Life was accompanied by an old German silent film about the consequences of abortion.
