George Seaton writes and directs this classic drama from 1947, an executive at Macy's department store, believes in taking a common-sense approach to life and is consequently raising her daughter Susan not to believe in Santa Claus. This year however, the convictions of both mother and child are challenged when a kindly old man is hired as the store Santa and insists that he is in fact the real thing. No one believes him, some even think he's insane, but he is willing to go to court to prove his case. The film won three Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Story and Best Screenplay. Our version will be in colour (originally shown in black and white).
Cast includes Maureen O'Hara, Edmund Glenn, John Payne and a great performance from the young Natalie Wood.
To make the evening really special we shall offer a choice of pizza slices/drinks/snacks throughout.
