      “Miracle on 34th Street,” the John Hughes production with Richard Attenborough, contains the same inspirational storyline as the original movie and continues to entertain drama lovers today. The remake was filmed in 1995, casting famous actors and actresses, such as Elizabeth Perkins, Dylan McDermott, and Mara Wilson. Attenborough portrayed Chris Cringle as the Santa Claus all fantasy lovers wish to believe in. Kind and gentle, Cringle had

      a heart for children and wouldn’t tolerate the idea of any abuse befalling them. I could hardly keep from cheering when McDermott convinced the judge, and Americans nationwide, Cringle was Santa Claus.

      Composer Bruce Broughton did a superb job in causing viewers to feel the emotions the actors and actresses were portraying. I felt the anger when the drunk criminal trapped Cringle, the hope when Susan wished to believe, the despair when Cringle was in the institution, and the joy when the judge claimed Cringle to be Santa Claus.

      I also liked the picture quality and the costumes. Colors showed vividly, deep and rich throughout the movie. The costumes fit the characters well. Perkins and McDermott wore striking business suits, Wilson wore dresses and jackets of quality material, and Attenborough wore an indescribably stunning Santa Claus ...

      suit. Even Cringle’s rings and walking stick were excellent accessories.

      Given the famous actors and actresses, the fact that the movie had superior acting is not surprising. Viewers could see the difficult life Perkins led and the emotional distress Attenborough underwent. For being so young, Wilson did a remarkable job as a serious, practical young girl who wished for the ideal family and home. Best of all were

      the court scenes, where McDermott defended the cause of Santa Claus and the judge eventually found the courage to make the right judgment and let Santa Claus go.

      I recommend the remake of “Miracle on 34th Street” to every movie viewer. The storyline is inspirational and will have viewers cheering along with Cringle and believing him as Santa Claus. I know I will continue watching this movie for many Christmases to come.
