A seasonal episode of the TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX HOUR from 1955, starring Thomas Mitchell as the Santa Claus character, although not quite as good as the feature film, it is good enough for vintage TV buffs.

A tongue-in-cheek, but happy little film about a grown-up who doesn't believe in Santa Clause, and a little girl who would like to, but who has been made cynical by the attitude of adults. The film is very 50's, but none the worse for that. Definitely one for the children at Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this a 2005 movie? No! But the 1950's TV adaptation is better than I thought it would be 23 Feb. 2014
By JohnAroundTheCornerReviews - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
At first, when I saw that Amazon had "THE MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (2005)" (now it says 2006) listed for the title of this item, I thought it was a 2005 adaptation. Even when I saw that it was in black and white, I was, at first, thinking that they had taken the original 1947 movie and done voiceovers and actor changes for some parts.

This is not a 2006 adaptation of the 1947 movie, but it is a delightful 1955 adaptation of the 1947 movie that made it onto television. Amazon needs to put the proper year next to the title,

THE MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (1955)

This is the "Hour of Stars" show for December 14, 1955.

In many ways, it seems more logical than the 1947 movie it is adapting. It never seemed logical to me that Doris would mail Susan's letter to the courthouse as she did in the 1947 movie. It makes more sense that she would be someone to think to call the post office and give them the idea about delivering all the mail.

I didn't know this version even existed until I saw it in the "Prime Eligible" section. I'm glad I watched it, and I will watch it again, along with the other versions that I can get ahold of each season.

If I were to compare this version to the 1947 version, I'm not sure which one I'd give 5.0 starts to, and which one I'd give 4.9 stars to. But both numbers round to 5.

I highly recommend both 1947 and 1955 versions.

And yes, I love every other version of "Miracle on 34th Street" that I have seen, even the ones that don't mention Macy's.

Try it, I bet you love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars my 10 year old boy was able to sit thru the entire movie and really enjoyed it, were as the 1 hour plus full-length ... 27 Nov. 2016

40 minutes into the movie I realized there were only about10 minutes left. Later I found out this was a 1955 made for TV movie. HOWEVER, no worries, my 10 year old boy was able to sit thru the entire movie and really enjoyed it, were as the 1 hour plus full-length movie would have been hard for him to watch!
3.0 out of 5 stars That was over quick 31 Dec. 2016
By Shawn Bjorback - Published on Amazon.com

Well seeing as its a lot shorter its a LOT faster. Having watched the original, its like they took that one and then cut it down to the bare minimum to get the story told. It was going so fast that we were only 10 minutes in and it felt like most of the movie was over! Though its not badly done, nor is it bad for what it was made for (TV not actual full length movie) we are heading over to watch the original. We like the slower pace and the character development! (though this might not be bad for showing younger kids since they can't sit for very long anyway, and then they'll enjoy the longer one when they are older - just a thought!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the classic, but an excellent short TV remake. 17 Dec. 2015
By James Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Nice black and white 1955 TV adaptation of the classic film, worth watching. Competent cast with Macdonald Carey, Teresa Wright and Thomas Mitchell as Kris Kringle. Also with Ray Collins (Lieutenant Tragg!) as the judge, Hans Conreid and the old stalwarts Herb Vigran and Maudie Prickett. As of this writing, Amazon text is incorrect, listing cast from another version of the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall, a well-acted and entertaining TV adaptation. 26 Dec. 2015
By Amanda Y - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Though it wasn't the version I was looking for, this 1955 TV version has an excellent cast, and was (to me) funnier than the earlier theatrical release. Seeing MacDonald Carey as a romantic leading man was unexpected, but didn't detract from the story. Thomas Mitchell is excellent as Kris Kringle, as are all of the supporting players. Being a child of the fifties, I also got a kick out of seeing the same outfits I sported back in the day.......It's only 47 minutes long, and well worth the time.
