Faith is believing in things that common sense tells you not to … that was good advice when this movie was made in 1947 and it's even better advice in today's cynicism-drenched society. Call us corny but here at Destination Hollywood we believe that even the most hard-hearted skeptics among us can't help but be touched by this heartwarming Christmas story about a disillusioned mother and daughter who are taught to believe again by Santa Claus himself. A lovely story, high-caliber stars and scene stealing supporting players combine to make a movie that has practically become required holiday viewing for generations of movie lovers. We celebrate all year-round in our Tribute to Miracle on 34th Street.
Best known for her five turns as John Wayne's leading lady and as being Natalie Wood's mother in Miracle on 34th Street, she in actuality had a varied and noteworthy Hollywood career which we spotlight in our Tribute to Maureen O'Hara.
Only 10 years old when she made her first movie she made a movie virtually every year after that until 1970. Her tragic death left us with an abbreviated but rich career which is spotlighted in our Tribute to Natalie Wood.
