DIRECTOR: GEORGE SEATON
CAST: MAUREEN O'HARA, JOHN PAYNE, EDMUND GWENN, NATALIE WOOD, WILLIAM FRAWLEY
When the regular Santa in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade has had a little too much to drink, an old man by the name of Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) steps into the jolly elf’s boots, and makes such a sensation that he’s invited to sit in at the midtown flagship store for the Christmas season. But the holiday honeymoon ends when Kris states that he really is Saint Nick, and has to stand in front of a court convened to judge his sanity, and the—is it possible?—validity of his startling claim. A justly cherished comedy-drama, bursting with heart.
