 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì 

Miracle on 34th Street—1955 television short film—originally releases on The 20th Century Fox Hour Season 1 Episode 6. It runs for approximately 40 minutes in black and white format. The movie charms with its innocence and sweet storyline. The movie works as an exceptionally clean, holiday, family share film.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The movie particularly deserves a watch to compare attitudes and how they’ve changed between 1955 to the time of this review (2021).
