Reviews
Mine: Smaltzy to the maximum, but good non the less.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Classic Valentine Davies fable of Kris Kringle (Gwenn) working in Macy's, encountering an unbelieving child (Wood), and going on trial to prove he's Santa. Delightful comedy-fantasy won Oscars for Gwenn, Davies, and screenwriter Seaton. It also marked Thelma Ritter's auspicious screen debut and gave an amusing bit to young Jack Albertson, as a postal employee. Remade in 1973 (for TV) and 1994. Also shown in computer-colored version.
