Miracle On 34th Street (1947) – Quickie Review

gallery-miracle-3One of the few films where I’m not bothered by the heavy-handed sentiment. When a movie is this charming you just accept it. Effectively touching and surprisingly very amusing holiday classic filled with spot-on performances. John Payne has a very strong Cary Grant quality; he’s effortlessly charismatic. And Edmund Gwenn is absolute perfection as Santa and no actor has ever been able to match his embodiment.

5-stars
