Miracle on 34th Street Reviews
(Full review coming soon)
While it's mostly a Christmas message, there are some more all-encompassing and timeless messages. Most particularly, the anti-consumerism and work-life balance messages.
Simple plot with a beautiful story. Has some very funny moments too.
Good performances by Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara and John Payne in the lead roles. An 8/9-year old Natalie Wood gives a fantastic performance in one of her earliest roles.
Second only to It's a Wonderful Life as far as Christmas movies go. Shares with that movie the same simple yet wonderful idealism.
