From KIDS FIRST!: A classic holiday film that continues to delight children and adults alike. Doris Walker is a no-nonsense divorced Macy's executive who desperately searches for a new store Santa. She hires a kind but quirky old man named Kris Kringle who insists that he's the real Santa Claus. Despite reassurances by Kringle's doctor that he is harmless, Doris remains skeptical. Eventually, Kris Kringle goes to court to try and prove it. Is he the real Santa Claus? This is truly a perennial family holiday film. Charming, with a great cast, and well produced, Miracle On 34th Street reveals typical society and daily life in the 1940s. Kids today may not realize what an anomaly a divorced working mom was at that time. Natalie Wood plays a brilliant six-year-old. While some scenarios seem unreal, the story is so strong that it suspends reality. KIDS FIRST!® Child Juror Comments: The best. Entirely held kids' attention. Made them feel sad and then happy. "Pretty cool even though it is old." 96 min.; Ages 8-12.

I rembember that scene. She doesn't know how to pretend and Santa has to show her, so they both run around pretending to be monkeys.

My research, strategic and not necessarily totally comprehensive (I've got young children and time better spent elsewhere), shows that this, like so many movies of its day (pre-1956), was originally shown in 1.37:1, and is only packaged as 1.33:1. Some manufacturers (Studios) claim 1.33:1 is... Read More
