For all skeptics who do not believe in Santa Claus, the 1947 holiday classic Miracle on 34th Street will change your mind. What would you do if you were a department store executive who hired a man to lure the kiddies before Christmas and he sent them to a competitor? What if he looked like and claimed he was the big guy? Find out how children reacted when this mystery was solved. Further, a matrimonial romance emerged when the young Natalie Wood helped unlock clues to this most perplexing tale.

When the film was released in 1947, The New York Times declared “let's catch its spirit and heartily proclaim that it is the freshest little picture in a long time, and maybe even the best comedy of this year.”

Watch this much revered masterpiece of cinema - also starring Maureen O'Hara, Edmund Gwenn and John Payne - at the Allen Public Library.
