Last night we started watching some of the few Christmas movies we have, and for the first time ever I watched a "Miracle On 34th Street" all the way though. When I was younger I would always just flip past it on TV and never really think twice about it; however now that I am older I found myself loving the movie and found that I think I enjoyed it even more in black and white.
I think my favorite scene from the movie may of been when Kirs was teaching Susan how to have an imagination and be a monkey so she could play with the other kids. I also loved the scene when Kirs was able to speak Dutch to the little girl who came to see him at Macy's.
I am sure no one will be shocked to read that my favorite character was Kris Kringle. I think that Edmund Gwenn did an amazing job and I even found myself believing he was Santa Claus and even wanted to throw something at the TV when they had in court trying to have him committed.
I also loved that they had William Frawley play Charlie Halloran in the movie. I couldn't help but yell out Fred when I first saw him.
It was a great movie and I am now on the hunt for other old black and white Christmas movies over here in Korea to watch. Wish me luck!
