Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Movie Summary

Six-year-old Susan has doubts about childhood’s most enduring miracle, Santa Clause.

But after meeting a special department store Santa who is convinced he is the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all – something to believe in.

    This is by far the best Christmas movie ever made. I have watched it so many times each Christmas I know the dialogue by heart. It puts you in that old fashioned Christmasy feeling. I wish things were like that today.

    I am glad Miracle on 34 Street (1947)will be aired, but disappointed that it is only on once while other shows are constantly being repeated. It was not on last year which was totally wrong. What happened to all the good old movies and cartoons. It’s a shame, if you have any control could you please put it on more this season?

    what has happened to our beautiful Older Christmas movies?? Who made such a decision to take ALL of them off the air? and Miracle on 34th Street (the older version especially) can’t even be found on Netflix or anywhere except to buy it! I’m sorry, but BUYING the movie, jsut isn’t the same as knowing these old favorites will be on TV during the Holidays! There are other Hallmark older movies that show the tru meaning of Christmas – not like these newer movies that are just heart throb stories!

    Bah-Humbug…. you are taking the Christmas tradition away… 🙁

    My family is very disappointed that the original “Miracle on 34th Street” i doesn’t appear to be on this year (2013). It was old when I was a child but still a great classic.
