From Amazon.co.uk

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 favourite, Miracle on 34th Street is one of those films that gets under your skin and must be revisited every so often. --Tom Keogh

If you want to see a really good old-fashioned Christmas film, this is the one for you! Much better than the remake, even though it's in black and white. Bound to make everyone wonder about the reality of Father Christmas (and we all really want him to be real). Just sit back and enjoy.

Whilst I don't agree with the other review that John Payne playes Kris Kringle (it was Edmund Gwenn) I completely agree that this is one of the greatest feel-good movies. Although the more recent version was okay, this original version has much more humour and charm. This is the type of movie you watch to cheer yourself up, whether xmas is around the corner or not! Very highly recommended.

Format:DVD
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," your favorite version of "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 up 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, although it takes Kris longer to convince the mother than it does to work his magic on the daughter.
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, which is a nice added bonus. You have to remember that the head of the studio had the delusion idea that since this was a good movie it should be released in May because that is when more people watched movie. However, the point of owning "Miracle on 34th Street" is to be able to watch it when it best fits your holiday schedule and cry over your 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars :) 9 Jan 2009
By Renate
Format:DVD
This is one of the oldest and best-known christmasmovies ever, so I really wonder why I waited until this year to see it. From now on, I will see it every year, `cause it`s one of the best christmas movies I`ve ever seen!

It`s about a little girl who doesn`t believe in Santa Claus, probably because her mom manages the christmasparade every year and tells her daughter about the Santa`s she have to rent, and how bad they are. The mom is also a very realistic person who thinks we should only believe in the things we know for a fact, and that imagination is unnecessary.
But this year a Santa appears as if from nowhere, and her mom hires him for the parade and for the mall. The little girl goes with her neighbour to see Santa at the mall and after talking to him she`s starting to wonder if he really is Santa Claus, as he claims to be...

Boy, is she ever wrong.
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 Kirs; (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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do Yo Believe ? 13 Oct 2002
Format:DVD
This film can really bring out the believer in all of us. To see Christmas once again through a childs eye. At the start a cynic due to the pressures of an adult who has forgotten what it is like to be a child. By the end even a cynic will be converted. This film was made all the better by he updated version which could bring a tear from the hardest heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Christmas Feel Good Movie 21 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is the original and still the best version of this classic Christmas movie. It is a warm and heart rending tale of a store Santa who claims to be the real thing. It shows the true spirit of Christmas and begs the question "Does Santa Claus really exist?"
