Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Edmund Gwenn gives an Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning performance as Kris Kringle, a man who dedicates himself to portraying Santa Claus in this 1947 American Christmas comedy-drama. Writer-director George Seaton too was awarded an Academy Award for his screenplay.

An old man going by the name of Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in the Macy's annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain's main store in midtown Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity.

Winner of Best Actor (Gwenn), Best Original Story (Valentine Davies) and Best Screenplay (Seaton), 1948 Academy Awards; Best Supporting Actor (Gwenn) and Best Screenplay, 1948 Golden Globes.

After It's A Wonderful Life, there really is no better flick to curl up with over the festive season.

The original (and best) version of the cockle-warming tale of a man who claims to be the real-life Santa Claus.

[Let us] heartily proclaim that it is the freshest little picture in a long time, and maybe even the best comedy of this year.

If you're after an entirely pleasant, inoffensive, feel-good movie at Christmas, this is it: the kind of innocent, utterly charming, hanky-ringing fare that they aren't supposed to be making any more.
