A little girl discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. Six-year-old Susan has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle - Santa Claus. Her mother told her the "secret" about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn't expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department store Santa who's convinced he's the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all - something to believe in. Written by

The name of the department store is C. F. Cole's. In Australia, there is a supermarket chain called Coles, operated by G. J. Coles & Co. The company has been in existence since 1914, and so was a known company from the time of the original Miracle on 34th Street (1947). C & F are four letters down from G & J respectively. See more »
When Santa Claus tells the little girl his name in other countries, he states that in Italy his name is "La Befana", however that is the name of the kind witch that flies around filling stockings on January 6th. His name in Italian is "Babbo Natale". See more »
A pretty darn awesome remake. It may bring some extra 90's cheese, mostly due to the needlessly dramatic music, and it may be overlong in places, but this certainly works. Attenborough is the only person I could imagine taking over this role. He comes across as a genuinely kind and considerate man, with nothing but kindness in his heart. Like the original, it keeps silent as to whether he is Santa or not. The court scene is particularly funny, with a few fist pumping moments. I'd still pick the original, but if you can't sit your whole family down in front of a black and white film, this certainly doesn't offend the original.
