Editorial Reviews

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.

Format: DVD
It's not until you are well and truly wading through the wealth of special features on the 2-disc special edition DVD of the 1947 Christmas favorite "The Miracle on 34th Street" that one realizes that the release features not just two versions of the movie, but three.
For not only does the release feature the original black & white version shown in theaters and the circa 1980s colorized version of the same feature film, but also hidden away on the second disc is the curiously titled "20th Century Fox Hour of the Stars: The Miracle on 34th Street," which turns out to be a 46 minute 1950s remake for television that is surprisingly in incredibly good quality.
The inclusion of this feature is indicative of Fox's loving tribute to this family movie gem that is this 2-disc release. Prior to its release the studio had no idea how to market what it considered to be an "unimportant program picture" and stuck it in the middle of its summer schedule with a trailer (shown here as a 5-minute promotional short) that did not feature one single clip from the movie and went at lengths to conceal it's Yuletide theme.
The story is so well known that it hardly bears relating in this review. Suffice to say that it charts the efforts of a man (played in an Academy Award winning performance by British actor Edmund Gwenn) to be legally recognized as Santa Claus, which in fact he is and to persuade a doubting young girl (played by Natalie Wood in a star-turning performance) and a practical realist (played by Maureen O'Hara) that he is indeed Father Christmas. Picked to replace a liquor induced Santa as the Macy's Parade Santa he is a smashing success and indeed Gwenn's performance is so incredible that Natalie Wood really did believe that she was acting opposite Santa Claus.

Delightful Christmas fantasy of a charming old man who believes he is Santa Claus, and the wonderful change he brings to the people around him. This perennial holiday classic is on many short-lists of the all time great Christmas movies. The film just oozes with warm-hearted humor. Very young Natalie Wood sparkles as Susan, who learns to stop being so grown up, and enjoy childhood, with all its wide-eyed wonder. Edmund Gwenn plays Kris Kringle, and lives the role. He totally connects with the kiddies who visit "Santa" at Macy's department store. The brief scene with the little Dutch refugee girl is a definite emotional high point in this movie. The combined reaction of relief and wonder in the child's face as she visits Santa and finds he speaks her language is memorable. Gene Lockhart as the harried judge, and William Frawley as his street-wise political advisor provide the needed comic relief to keep the court-room segments from becoming too overwhelmed by lawyers and their tactics. Even Jack Albertson shows up as an ingenious postal clerk who helps Kringle solve his legal problem. The on-location scenes filmed on the streets of New York assist the viewer in suspending disbelief. An enthusiastic cast, crisp direction by George Seaton, a sentimental holiday message, and great humor make this movie a solid holiday treat for the entire family. Multiple viewing only enriches the rewards. Beware remakes! ;-)

Format: Blu-ray
Miracle on 34th Street is a true classic and a must see each Christmas/Holiday Season.
With that said my review will concentrate on the technical issues related to this release rather than the film itself so you can help decide if it is is worth your hard earned cash to upgrade from your current copy, be it VHS or DVD.

Miracle on 34th Street comes to you on a BD25 disc with DTS HD Master Audio 5.1 sound (the original Mono is an option for you purists out there) and a small but pleasing amount of extra features. Mine came in an eco case with no slipcover but has nice color printing on both the cover itself and the disc.

How does the picture quality on this Blu ray disc compare to the most recent DVD release? Simply put, it is a noticeable improvement but won't win any transfer of the year awards. There are NO 'issues' with the transfer other than it being from less than an ideal source. I can not bring myself to believe this was taken from a camera negative, but rather from a previous scan done at a less than ideal resolution. Don't get me wrong, it looks GREAT and at time shows much fine detail and even depth from time to time. It just isn't reaching the heights of 'Casablanca' or 'The Maltese Falcon' to name few older B&W Blu ray titles I own. I have learned over the last few years that the sharpness of the image has very little to do with the age of the film, but rather the condition of the source used for the scan and whether or not that source was the original negative or 2nd or 3rd generation COPY of that negative. I have films from the 30's that are razor sharp but they came from a full restored original negative and it shows.

The picture is clear and free of almost any print damage.

Format: VHS Tape
Since "Miracle on 34th Street" begins with the Macy's parade on Thanksgiving Day, it is the obvious movie to watch on Turkey Day to begin the Christmas season (when you watch "White Christmas," "A Christmas Carol," and "It's a Wonderful Life" is up to you). I know am not alone in my belief that Edmund Gwenn IS Kris Kringle, which means he IS Santa Claus. Of course they gave Gwenn the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in 1948, but the film also won Oscars for Best Writing, Original Story (Valentine Davies) and Best Writing, Screenplay (George Seaton). Maureen O'Hara plays Doris Walker, a single mom who insists on bringing her daughter Susan, played by adorable Natalie Wood in one of the great childhood performances of all time, in a no-nonsense manner, which means no fantasy, no fairy tales and certainly no Santa Claus. Boy, is she ever wrong.
This version of this classic holiday film offers up the long trailer in which the publicity department tries to figure out how to market the film to the masses. A nice added bonus. However, the point of owning "Miracle on 34th Street" is to be able to watch it when it fits our holiday schedule and cry over our favorites scenes. The best times to cry during this movie are as follows: (1) When Susan overhears Kris talking Dutch to the little refugee girl; (2) When Mr. Macy admits under oath on the witness stand that he believes Kris to be Santa Claus; (3) When Susan writes "I believe in you too" on Susan's letter to Kris; (4) When Susan yells, "Stop, Uncle Fred! Stop!" and (5) when Fred sees the cane in the corner. Please feel free to add others to this list as you see fit. Now, excuse me, as I have to go dry my eyes and remember that some films have become holiday classics for good reasons and that remaking something in color does not mean just because it is new it is improved. Happy Turkey Day, everyone!

cut scene?
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
