The 1947 film comedy Miracle on 34th Street starred Edmund Gwenn as a bearded gentleman named Kris Kringle, who was convinced that he was the genuine Santa Claus. The earlier Miracle was good enough as it stood, so why remake it? Still, the full-color 1973 Miracle on 34th Street has the considerable advantage of Sebastian Cabot, his trademarked beard dyed snowy white, as Kringle, so it isn't as bad as expected. The story, which involves the commercial and legal ramifications of the "real" Santa taking a job as a department store Santa at Macy's, was barely updated for the 1970s, meaning that several of the plot devices--including a nasty psychiatrist who has Kringle committed--were somewhat anachronistic. The uplifting final scene, wherein a cynical little girl becomes a true believer of Santa Claus (as do the adults in the story), still works well in the remake, even though Suzanne Davidson isn't in the same league as the original Miracle's Natalie Wood. The TV-movie version of Miracle on 34th Street wasn't too successful, but that didn't stop John Hughes from churning out a second remake in 1994.

  1. A Christmas Gem 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 21st 2017

    A little seen Christmas gem of a show. Heading up the cast are 70's staples David Hartman, Jane Alexander and Mr French himself, Sebastian Cabot. The cast is a virtual who's who of 70's Hollywood. It's a really sweet little movie that will make you feel wonderful.


  2. Miracle On 34th Street - 1973. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 15th 2017

    My favorite version of Miracle on 34th Street. Saw this when I was a kid in the 70s and watched all the showings in the 80s. Love seeing the Macys Parade and all the 70s New York Christmas atmosphere and all the TV stars from back in the day hat I grew up with. Hard to find on DVD but Zeus has it and it is exceptional. Highly recommended.

  4. A Wonderful Christmas Classic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 3rd 2016

    This version of Miracle on 34th Street, IMHO, is better than the 1949 version, if you are a baby boomer. It is more current to we who are baby boomers. The story is the same as the 1949 version but feels more real. It is so hard to find on DVD, though! Zeus got it for me and even though it took a very long time to get it shipped, it was worth it.
