Not as Good as The 1947 Movie But Much Better Then The 1994 Movie!
Okay this 1973 made for TV remake isn't as good as the old 1947 black and white original Miracle on 34th Street but it is still good and I actually enjoyed watching it! It was first shown on TV in 1973 when I as a little girl but I had never seen it until this year and so far I have watched it about 2 or 3 times and while the original cast is better I thought that Sebastian Cabot who some may remember as the butler Mr. French in the show Family Affair was good as Kris Kringle and was probably the best actor in the movie along with Jane Alexander! Suzanne Davidson the child actor who played Susan was no where near as great as Natalie Wood but she wasn't bad and David Hartman was good but his acting was a little over the top at times especially in the courtroom scene about the post office and the letters for Santa. All in all not as good as the original but I liked it and any child of the 70's should find this movie amusing and their kids might like it too and it's much better then that awful 1994 theatrical remake!
