Six-year-old Susan Walker discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. She has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle, Santa Claus. Her mother, Dorey, told her the "secret" about him a long time ago, so she 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, she is given the most precious gift of all, something to believe in.Written by

In the first shot of the front entrance of the Shopper's Express store, a giant display prop of a Talkboy can be seen briefly through the window. That was Kevin's favorite toy in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992), which was also produced by John Hughes. See more »

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.
