Heartwarming Christmas story in which a man who moonlights as Kris Kringle at Macy's claims to be the genuine article. The adults refuse to believe him and begin to suspect that the bearded, portly man is not playing with a full deck. But most important to Kris is a little girl who steadfastly refuses to believe that Santa Claus is real. Can he convince her--and everyone else--that he is telling the truth? His freedom may depend on it...
MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET was the film debut for actress Thelma Ritter.
