Miracle on 34th Street

George Seaton

Doris Walker (Maureen O'Hara), an executive at Macy's department store, believes in taking a common-sense approach to life and is consequently raising her daughter Susan (a young Natalie Wood) not to believe in Santa Claus.

This year however, the convictions of both mother and child are challenged when the kindly old man (Edmund Gwenn) hired as the store Santa insists that he is in fact the real thing. No one believes him, some even think he's insane, but he is willing to go to court to prove his case. Everyone's faith is put to the test as young and old alike face the age-old question: Do you believe in Santa Claus?
