    It never gets old

    I was a little disappointed to find that, despite the full color cover, this was the original black/white version of the film (a colorized version exists), but the story of Kris Kringle and his friends at Macy's is the same reliable holiday good-times tale. In the accompanying special features we learn that the movie was originally released in the summer because the studio wanted to take advantage of summer-time audiences and had little confidence that it would do well in November-December. It turned out to be so popular that it ran continuously through the summer and fall into the Christmas season that year, and it's been revived many times since. It was in a bargain bin - look for it there.

    It had been a long time since I saw this movie and I wanted my 9 yr old to see it. It was every bit as good as I remembered and my daughter enjoyed it as well. The only knock I have is that there's a colorized version of this movie out there and even though my daughter is good about seeing this movie (and It's a Wonderful Life) in their original B&W form, it would have been nice if they included the color version as well. I have It's a Wonderful Life on blu-ray and have watched it 5 times with my daughter, one of those times in color - it's a nice option to have.

    On the radio I listened to a show with 5 different movie critics. 4 of them said it was their favorite Christmas movie of all time... I figured how could I go wrong. I'm 62 and have never seen this movie..... I've really missed out... This movie will definitely not disappoint. 2 discs one is the original in black and white. The other is color. I watched the original black and white... must see.

    I bought this movie sight unseen out of curiosity. Given that it takes place about seventy years ago, it's like a whole different world. I will admit that Edmund Gwenn is a very convincing, very charming Santa Claus, but in the end, 'It's A Wonderful Life' is still my favorite Xmas movie. I do think it's a heck of a coincidence that William Frawley appears in both movies, though. If you don't know who that is, he played Fred Mertz on 'I Love Lucy.'

    Viewing this movie in theatres and on TV has always been a pleasure. The TV versions usually filled with commercials, had that used film look. The quality was poor, with scratches. This 70th anniversary version is so pristine, it's a real treat and pleasure to view and own it. Miracle on 34th Street is a Christmas present those who love movies should own.

    Classic movie

    The movie is a classic and is great to watch around Christmas. It is well acted and directed, with the plot moving along nicely. Adults and kids both have something to enjoy with the tale of believing in Santa, even though it seems irrational. The only negative is that the colored version of the movie is not included, only black and white. This drawback is amplified by the fact that the DVD has both, but the Blu-ray, which has more space on the disc, does not.

    If you have never watched "Miracle on 34th Street", you really must add it to your holiday viewing list. It's a classic that transcends decades of movie-making. The milder pace of a story-driven plot contrasts sharply to more contemporary films, but that's part of the appeal of taking a nostalgic trip back to the golden age of Hollywood. It's a sweet, sentimental story that won't disappoint.

    Macy's Santa Claimed as "The One & Only Santa"

    This is my only favorite version of this movie, as no one plays the role of Santa Clause better than Edmund Gwen, also starring Maureen O'Hara, John Payne, and Natalie Wood. This movie is about a Macy's Department Store Santa, who proclaims to be the REAL Santa Claus. He spreads Christmas cheer throughout NYC by telling the children's parents to go to other stores in order to make their Christmas wishes come true & putting the kids' wishes ahead of Macy's sales.

    There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been said about this movie; it's a true Christmas classic. I was pleasantly surprised by the extra features included on the disc - Maureen O'Hara's commentary and the other accounts really help create a complete picture of the joys, challenges, and unique aspects surrounding this movie that you might not have otherwise known. Overall, I was very happy with this purchase.

    One of my favorite movies for the holidays, excellent acting and what a great story. The only thing wrong with this version is that it is not colorized, but for the realist this is perfect in stunning black and white, which I did not mind because I enjoy the original version but would have loved to see it colorized. Enjoy this great Christmas movie, you won't be disappointed.

    I had gotten this DVD for Christmas from my husband. I wanted the original version with Natalie Wood. It reminds of when I was little, and I would watch with my parents. Now, I can watch with my kids, and it's all new to them. It's always amazing to watch through a younger ones eyes. For me it brings back fond memories, while creating new ones at the same time.

    There have been remakes of this movie, forget them. They are not worth watching. The cast is perfection, Edmond Gwine is Santa Claus as far as I'm. Maureen O'hats is luminous and lovely. I watch it every thanksgiving and it starts the holiday season off right.

    So if you do not believe in Saint Nick then you will after this movie. Great story for all kids of every age. A great beginning and a awesome ending. This is a true must see movie at Christmas, after all you may just believe in Santa all over again.

    Get the original release of this movie. It's the best version by far. The blu ray release is overall done very well. Picture still jumps/flickers in two places where I think they can fix those problems by now. And the movie is timeless of course.

    This is a timeless classic for Christmas for the family to enjoy. I was hoping that both versions were on this bluray, but only had the B/W version. You would think for bluray that the color version would be included.

    This is a must have Christmas Classic. I also love the 70's tv version with Sebastian Cabot, but that version lacks the quality of this classic!! Remember, buy Blu-Ray's, don't stream --- Don't trust your favorite movies to someone elses server - it may not be there when you want it!!

    Overall, it is a classic Christmas movie. Should be a part of everyone's holiday DVD collection. The best added bonus is the two DVD's you receive in this set; the original black and white version on one and the revised version in color on the other. Plus added bonus footage. Love it!

    I never miss a year without watching Miracle on 34th street, along with a couple other movies that set the spirit of the season in motion. This is a wonderful story that every family should share together, it shows what the real spirit of Christmas is all about. Bonus: Natalie Woods first movie.
