One Kris Kringle, a department-store Santa Claus, causes quite a commotion by suggesting customers go to a rival store for their purchases. But this is nothing to the stir he causes by announcing that he is not merely a make-believe St. Nick, but the real McCoy. The production is followed by a preview of scenes from the Fox feature film The Rains of Ranchipur, starring Lana Turner, Richard Burton, Fred MacMurray, and Michael Rennie. This behind-the-scenes portion was produced and directed by Joe Parker. Written by
Miracle on 34th Street is one of my favourite stories. I found this in a DVD collection of Christmas movies. I was hoping it would be a redeeming factor to the uninspiring collection. I'm sad to say it wasn't. There is very little new or original here, though with its short run-time, there is lots missing. Do yourself a favour and skip this version and watch the original, its basically the same movie. Or else try one of the other available versions. This one was a waste of time.
It's even sadder that I have to write ten lines of dreck to fill up the minimum length requirement. There's not much to say. Half the movie is missing. I wouldn't have minded that so much if they tried to do it in an original way, but instead, they just chopped out half the movie.
