In this 1947 heart-felt film, Kris Kringle takes a job as the Santa at Macy's. Before long, he is a hit with everyone... except the event director Doris Walker (O'Hara), who doesn't believe in fairy-tales. This is a great family film, which will win you over with it's compassion and endearment, not to mention the cutest performance by a 9-year-old Natalie Wood.
