This is from the original, 1947 version of Miracle of 34th Street, starring Edmund Gwenn as the one and only Kris Kingle. Yes, the scene below is colorized. I’m not a fan of colorization but at least it’s not as poorly done here as it’s been in some other films that I’ve recently watched.
Anyway, on to the scene! Kris Kringle is on trial. His lawyer (John Payne) is attempting to prove the Kris really is Santa Claus and he gets some help from the U.S. Postal Service.
I love this scene and I love this movie. It always puts me in the mood for Christmas. And, if nothing else, it shows that postal service has gotten at least one thing right over the years. Anyone who has ever seen Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle know that there’s no way he isn’t Santa Claus!
