You can always count on a screening of the timeless holiday classic Miracle on 34th Street at the Nick during the Holidays. It’s the cinematic equivalent of a hot cup of cocoa: sweet, seasonal and heartwarming. In this 1947 gem, a hard working realist, Doris (Maureen O’Hara), hires Kris Kringle (aka Santa Claus) as Macy’s resident Santa when they’re original hire ends up to have less-than-saintly habits. Though Doris is skeptical, Kris soon becomes a hit with the company owner and shoppers alike for his commitment to character and honest-to-a-fault attitude. Even Doris’s equally no-nonsense daughter (played by a then-8-year-old Natalie Wood) is won over. However, jealous co-workers aren’t so charmed by Kris’s insistence that he is the real Santa Claus, and soon he’s involved in an epic court battle to prove his sanity and identity. Beloved by generations of cynics and dreamers alike!
