Miracle on 34th Street

"This is a tale that we want to believe in, that creates a world we seem to desperately
desire, free of the blatant commercialism that surrounds us, where love and decency and
generosity of spirit are their own rewards. What we want Christmas to be all about, really."
So writes the Santa Cruz Sentinel of this most heartwarming holiday story. By chance, Kris
Kringle, an old man in a retirement home, gets a job working as Santa for Macy's. Kris
unleashes waves of good will with Macy's customers and the commercial world of New York City by referring parents to other stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked for.
Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy's vocational counselor, who plots to have Kris
shanghaied to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing.
Especially at stake is one little girl's belief in Santa.
