When Macy’s department store needs a replacement Santa in a hurry, event director Doris Walker (O’Hara) thinks she has found the perfect candidate. In fact, to her increasing dismay, he is a little too perfect: not only does he insist that Christmas cheer and goodwill are more important than sales figures, but he also says that his name is Kris Kringle and that he is the real Santa Claus. Children all seem to adore him – including Doris’s own daughter Susan (Wood) – but his behaviour eventually lands him in mental hospital.

Is Kris really who he claims to be? And is it really so insane to behave according to the spirit of Christmas? Mystery and magic abound in this delightful family film, surely one of the greatest of all Christmas movies.
