In the spirit of Christmas, there is no classic more fitting for the Holidays. Edmund Gwenn turns in the most believable and traditional Santa Claus performance ever on the silver screen.

"Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don't you see? It's not just Kris that's on trial, it's everything he stands for. It's kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles."

"The groundbreaking trial that proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt that, yes Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus. Thus ensuring, that as someone who more often than not, tends to end up on the naughty list, my stockpile supply of coal lumps will never run low. Of all the courtroom dramas that have been made so far, Miracle On 34th Street stands alone as the one movie that is successfully able to merge the trial genre with that of the Christmas genre.
