HOLIDAY - MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET(1954)


This is not the classic from 1947!! It also
does not have Shirley Temple in it! This
was an episode of The 20th Century Fox
Hour(apparently aka "Hour Of Stars"! Still
a great little "movie" (really only about an
hour long) starring MacDonold Carey, and
featuring a couple of great actors, Hans
Conried(Make Room For Daddy and
many Disney movies, both as voice and
in real life) and Ray Collins(TV's Perry
Mason as Lt. Tragg)! The little girl is ok,
but not of Shirley's caliber! B

A review from an IMDb.com customer:

This abridged TV episode was done by 20th
Century Fox as part of a way to keep up
with the emerging popularity of the new
medium. The shortness of the piece explains
the format of under one hour for the program.

As far as the remake is concerned, its director,
Robert Stevenson, does a good job in recreating
the atmosphere. The young actress, Sandy Descher,
as Susan, is pretty intense for a girl her age. If
one adds the likable actress Teresa Wright, as
the mother, who happens to work for Macy's
and McDonald Carey, as the neighbor, Fred
Gaily, the casting is excellent. Both had
appeared in Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt",
and they have an easy time with one another.

Thomas Mitchell makes a delightful Kris Kringle.
Also in the cast, we see Ray Collins, a veteran
film actor and Hans Conried, who is Ms. Wright's
supervisor.

A timeless story told with conviction. - jotix100
