The desperate and contrite Fotheringay calls on his powers one last time to put things back as they were before he ever entered the pub the day before, willing away his power to work miracles.
Fotheringay appears again in the pub as in the early scenes of the film, again tries the trick with the lamp, and fails. One of the Celestials remarks on the experiment, that all that came out of it was 'negativism, lust, and vindictive indignation' and that's all humans have. The giver of power defends that humans were only apes yesterday, and to give them time to grow up. He is retorted, 'once an ape, always an ape. It's argued that indignation is selfish.
That humanity was made for the mess, and will never get out of the mess. The Giver of Power decides to give power to humanity slowly, bit by bit, allow wisdom and maturity to keep pace. Writing for The Spectator in , Graham Greene gave the film a very poor review, summarizing the film as "a muddle" and commenting that "the whole entertainment, sometimes fake poetry, sometimes unsuccessful comedy, sometimes farce, sometimes sociological discussion, [are] without a spark of creative talent or a trace of film ability".
Green criticizes the direction and production as "shocking [with] slowness, vulgarity, [and] over-emphasis", the casting and characterization as "quite the wrong type", the special effects as "grimly repetitive, [ Frank Nugent in The New York Times noted "a delightfully humorous fantasy with an undertone of sober Wellsian philosophy," praising Roland Young's performance, as having "described the character perfectly, drawing him as a fumbling little man with a rabbity soul, a limited imagination and other characteristic human frailties and virtues," and concluding that "Lothar Mendes's direction has achieved a sound balance between the jocund and the profound.

As I reflect on this experience, my heart fills with gratitude to the Lord for His divine intervention to relieve the suffering, heal the sick, and raise the dead. I grieve, however, for the many, similarly afflicted, who knew not how to find the Master, to learn of His teachings, and to become the beneficiaries of His power. I remember that President Clark himself suffered heartache and pain in the tragic death at Pearl Harbor of his son-in-law, Mervyn S. Bennion, captain of the battleship West Virginia. That day there had been no ram in the thicket, no steel to stop the shrapnel, no miracle to heal the wounds of war.
But faith never wavered, and answered prayers provided the courage to carry on. So it is today.
In our lives, sickness comes to loved ones, accidents leave their cruel marks of remembrance, and tiny legs that once ran are imprisoned in a wheelchair. Mothers and fathers who anxiously await the arrival of a precious child sometimes learn that all is not well with this tiny infant.
Self-pity, personal withdrawal, or deep despair will not bring the peace, the assurance, or help which are needed. Rather, we must go forward, look upward, move onward, and rise heavenward.

Then came the loss of literally everything: his wealth, his family, his health. Eve, then 28, was born September 18, A case of meningitis when she was a baby resulted in brain damage. She cannot read; but she copied the entire Book of Mormon, letter by letter, over a period of about eighteen months. In doing so, she learned to recognize certain words and phrases, such as commandments and nevertheless. Her parents rejoiced in her gladness of heart and buoyancy of spirit.
Heaven was very near. On another occasion, near the Christmas season, I had the opportunity to meet in the Church Office Building with a group of handicapped children.
There were about sixty in the group. My heart literally melted as I met with them. They presented to me a beautiful booklet where each one had prepared a special page illustrating those blessings for which he or she was most thankful at Christmastime. I commend the many teachers and families who work behind the scenes in bringing a measure of comfort, purpose, and joy to these special children.

They brightened my entire day. Several years ago, Brigham Young University honored with a presidential citation Sarah Bagley Shumway, a truly remarkable woman of our time. The people in these plain but important places bring stability to the present and promise to the future. Their lives are filled with struggle and deep feeling as they face circumstances that rarely fit neatly within the formulae of plays, films and newscasts.
But their victories, however slight, strengthen the boundaries through which the history of future generations must pass. Sarah married H.
