Miracle On 34th Street (1947)


When a Macy’s department store Santa claims to be the real thing, it’s up to a young lawyer to defend him in the courts to keep him from being deemed as mentally unstable. But while Kris Kringle is trying to convince the courts, he also has to convince a young mother and her daughter that he actually does exist. While you’re watching the 1947 classic “Miracle on 34th Street”, here are a few movie mistakes to look for.

• Kris Kringle/Santa Claus finishes talking with Alfred after getting dressed in the Macy’s locker room. The scene cuts to a wide view of the crowd waiting in line for Santa. Kris/Santa is to the left of the screen and in the far view, he picks up the child in the hat and puts him on his right knee (Santa’s head is near the child’s left shoulder). But when it cuts to the close-up, the boy is on Santa’s left knee.

• Kris/Santa is talking with Mr. Sawyer. Mr. Sawyer tells him to stand with his feet together and his arm extended. When Kris/Santa does so, the back view of Mr. Sawyer shows him drumming his fingers on the edge of the desk. But when it cuts to a front view, Mr. Sawyer’s left arm is on the desk, his right arm is up and he’s fiddling with his eyebrows. It cuts to the back view and he’s once again drumming his fingers . When he tells Kris/Santa that the examination is over, he now has his hands folded together in front of him on the desk. But in the back view of him, his hands are flat on the desk.

• Mr. Gimbel is talking to his staff about Macy’s new “goodwill policy”. He places his hands flat on his desk. It cuts to a close-up when he mentions “the welfare of the public” and both hands are folded together in front of him before he puts them back on the desk.

• Kris/Santa is on his way to the courtroom and there is a policeman walking with him. Right before he’s stopped at the elevator by Alfred, he walks behind a structure column. The shadow of the camera can be seen moving across it.

“Miracle on 34th Street” (1947) stars Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Edmund Gwenn and Natalie Wood. It runs 96 minutes and is rated G.
