Christmas Film Club Movie ”Miracle on 34th Street” 20th Dec 8pm
Dir. George Seaton USA 1947 96 mins Cert: G
Starring: Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Natalie Wood, Edmund Gwenn
Macy’s department store needs to find a replacement Santa in the run up to Christmas. Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) – with his white beard and twinkling eyes – seem to be the perfect substitute; but when Kris claims that he is the real Santa Claus, he is soon dismissed. Can he prove that he is not insane and is indeed the real Father Christmas?
Originally shown in cinemas with the title The Big Heart, and featuring Maureen O’Hara and a young Natalie Wood, the 1947 version of this warm-hearted Christmas favourite is the original and arguably the best.
