Miracle on 34th Street


As the Christmas season draws near, Macy’s Department Store hires a jolly bearded man to be their in-store Santa Claus. It turns out to be a marketing bonanza for the store, as Kris (Edmund Gwenn), as he calls himself, seems able to talk to anyone – and not necessarily even in English –  and bring people together. The exception to this is dyed-in-the-wool curmudgeon Sawyer, the store psychiatrist. He thinks Kris is a just plain nuts and contrives to have him committed to Bellevue Mental Hospital. But Kris has plenty of allies,  in the form of attorney Fred Gailey (John Payne) and fellow employee Doris Walker (Maureen O’Hara) and her wise-beyond-her-years six-year old daughter Susan (Natalie Wood). They come to his aid to prove in court that there is indeed a Santa Claus!

The 1947  film won Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Edmund Gwenn); Best Writing, Original Story (Valentine Davies); and Best Writing, Screenplay.  It was also nominated for Best Picture, losing to Gentlement’s Agreement.
