Tuesday Movie Matinee: Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
Starring Maureen O’Hara and John
Payne. An old gent who is the living
image of Santa Claus, claims to
be the real thing. Serving as a last minute
replacement for the drunken
Santa who was to have led Macy’s
Thanksgiving Parade, he is offered a job as a Macy’s
toy-department Santa. Complications ensue when
Macy’s nasty in-house psychologist, has Kris locked
up in Bellevue as a lunatic. A young lawyer represents
Kris at his sanity hearing, rocking the New York
judicial system by endeavoring to prove that Kris is,
indeed, the real Santa Claus! Comedy, Drama, Family.
Not Rated, 96 minutes.
