AKFilmFan's rating of the film Miracle on 34th Street

It may be a big ad for Macy's here or there, but this charming film rests on the gentle shoulders of Edmund Gwenn. He creates one of the definitive representations of Claus in cinema history. Yes, it's very Capra-ish, but try not being ecstatic during the court decision. And even if it loses some of it's power when Gwenn is absent, this is definitely a bonfire classic, Christmas movie or otherwise.
