kevin w This is a shortened, made-for-TV version of the rightfully much-beloved original theatrical release Miracle on 34th Street. Thomas Mitchell, veteran character actor of considerable merit, takes over the central role of Kris Kringle, unfortunately looking like a man on death row hoping for a phone call from the governor, perhaps fully aware that the Edmund Gwynne/Natalie Wood combo of this story was too powerful ever to be seriously challenged. And so a sad version, interesting for having attempted the cherished classic, but seemingly all-too-aware of failure beforehand. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I have yet to see any other version of this classic but for a short made for tv flick I have to admit I was delighted at how much I enjoyed it. I have no clue how close it resembles the more popular versions (and if they are similar I am anxious to see them) but as is The Miracle on 34th Street is a film I would have no problem making a tradition of viewing during the holiday season. Thomas Mitchell is wonderful as Kris Kringle and other than some weak acting by the little Sandy Descher Miracle on 34th Street is a great holiday flick. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Even though this is a fair TV remake, Thomas Mitchell looked more like an "evil" Santa than Edmund Gwenn in the original. It's best to skip this version. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I would almost just like to watch this version. Not only is it the original, but it's only 46 minutes long. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review luis g A watered down TV version of the original with awkward performances and a rushed plot.
