The original 1947 version of this Valentine Davies story follows the misadventures of Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) as he gets a job playing Santa Claus at Macy's department store in New York City. Natalie Wood is the little girl who tells him she doesn't believe in Santa, and Maureen O'Hara and John Payne are the couple who help Kris through a trial in which he must prove he's the jolly fellow from the North Pole. A sweet movie and perennial Christmas favorite, this is one of those movies that gets under your skin and must be revisited every so often. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to the DVD edition.

If your children are anything like mine, if it is black & white then it is if no interest... and that is where this film earns it's first star. The remake is a colored contemporary take on a classic and timeless theme.
It earns it's 2nd star for the story itself, meaningful and beautiful. Perfectly suited for the holidays and offering reminders to us all about who we are, who we want to be and what society needs to be successful.
The 3rd star comes from it's faithful representation of the original while still creating a little of it's own identity.
The 4th star comes from the wonderful cast, most notably the exquisite Richard Athen borough, who could not be a more perfect choice.
Finally, the 5th start in my 5 star rating comes from the shear magic of having the family sit down together during the holidays and entertains without screaming, explosions, robots, profanity etc....
Christmas still has means to be special, this film is one of the easier ways to help achieve that.
Cannot wait until Christmas 2014.
This movie is a little better in black and white but the technology advancement in inevitable.
