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.

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

If you have seen this movie and like it, I can think of one reason.
If you have seen this movie and like it, I can think of one reason. You have never seen the original 1947 version. Both this one and the 1973 made-for-tv version remove all the real feeling of magic from the story. I know Valentine Davies would be sorely disappointed. Sorry to be a grinch, but Maureen O'Hara, Edmund Gwenn, and Natalie Wood were 1000% more believable.
