The holiday season is in full swing when a cultured gentlemen with twinkling eyes, and ample belly, and a snowy beard is hired as Macy's department store Santa. He claims his name is Kris Kringle, and soon fills everyone with Christmas spirit - except for his boss, Doris Walker, who's raising her daughter Susan to not believe in Santa but when Kris is declared insane and put on trail everyone's faith is put to the test as old and young alike face the age old question: Do you believe in Santa Claus?

The colorized version is very well done and adds sharpness and pleasure to the images. It is highly recommended! The B&W version is always there for those who prefer it.
This movie's screenplay and direction was by George Seaton who also did Teacher's Pet, Airport (the 1970 original from the novel), and many other classics. George Seaton had a gift for economy and clarity in scriptwriting and directing... there isn't one unneeded word or shot in the entire movie. When you watch other George Seaton movies, you can see the same scriptwriting and directing techniques and they are a pleasure to behold.
Heads up if you purchase the Two-Disc Special Edition: It appears that someone sometimes splits the "Disc One" and "Disc Two" slim-cases apart that come together in the box, selling them separately. If you receive only a single disc, but it is marked "Disc One" or "Disc Two," contact the seller (as we had to do).
All in all, we highly recommend this movie and the colorized version and extra features in the Two Disc Special Edition. It is definitely the best value and contains the most material about this wonderful movie.
Wood is finally realized in the end that will give you a happy glow.
Santa and Natalie Wood as the daughter, is the one to watch. I take the Solomon approach and recommend you see both of them. While the story is the same in both movies and even the dialog is very similar ,they each are able to capture the tone of the period when they were made.
I am just waiting for the 2017 version of the movie where instead of a department store Santa, the focus will be on a Santa from Amazon and
the story will be centered around the hacking of the web site. On the other hand, I think I will just enjoy the holidays watching both movies.
