I realised that I needed to see the original film first seeing as that obviously earned better responses and reviews than the remake did. Plus, I have had fri... read more

Doris Walker a no-nonsense Macy's executive, desperately searches for a new store Santa. She hires Kris Kringle who insists that he's the real Santa Claus.

“Little nonsense in this classical christmas tale, with early NY street feeling, good casting of Ohara and Payne in a non exotic location and irresistible Gwenn. A capraesque feeling all the way” read more

50 Most Depressing Happy Endings (51 movies items)

"The Happy Ending: Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) manages to restore Susan’s (Natalie Wood) belief in Christmas by giving her family a dream home. The Depressing Implications: Father Christmas doesn’t actually exist, so Susan’s in for a whole lot of pain when she grows up. The deceit. Just think of the deceit."
