This is my favourite version of this story,even though I grew up watching both the newer colour version as well. It is one of the sweetest and most innocent Christmas movies out there!! I so glad I could get it now that they aire it so little on t.v. The acting is very good, and not stiff like in a lot of older movies, and the end has me grinning every time. If you really do, deep down, beleive in Santa Claus, then this is the movie for you.
