Episode 79: Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

miracle on 34th streetA film about Santa Clause, released in June of 1947, with a marketing campaign that never once mentioned Santa (or Christmas). Just how much of a hit could such a movie be? Well, history has rendered its verdict, and found this a holiday classic for film viewers young and old! In this episode (released on Christmas, 2017), Jeff, Buddy, and Chad look back at the 1947 hit "Miracle on 34th Street!" Written and directed by George Seaton, based on a story by Valentine Davies, and starring Maureen O'Hara, John Payne, Gene Lockhart, Porter Hall, Charlie Halloran, a very young Natalie Wood, and the fantastic Edmund Gwenn (who won an Academy Award for best supporting actor for his role as Kris Kringle), this film has been remade several times for TV and film, the best of those being the 1994 version. But no remake can touch the heartwarming tale that's told in the original, something to gather up your loved ones and watch on Christmas Day!
