House from Miracle On 34th Street: The original Miracle On 34th Street was in 1947 and starred Natalie Wood as Susan, Maureen O’Hara as Doris, John Payne as Fred, and Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle. Here is the real house used in the movie.
We all know the story, but I am telling it here again in a very shortened version anyway.
Doris is quite cynical and her daughter Susan is as well, especially in regard to there being a real Santa.
“He is just a nice old man dressed up in a Santa suit.”
While being tucked in by Kris Kringle one night, Susan pulls out a picture of a house and say’s this is what she wants for Christmas and if there is a Santa he will get it for her.
On Christmas morning there is no house under the tree for Susan and she loses faith. But, Kris Kringle tells Doris and Fred to take a certain route that Christmas morning, and as they are driving along Susan screams “Stop” in front of a house (which is the house she asked for) and jumps out of the car and runs into the house, much to the distress of her mother and soon-to-be father, and they follow her inside.
The Miracle on 34th Street cane in the corner at the end is the part that every adult must love, as this shows that Santa really does exist, despite our knowing otherwise.
Now I realize Santa did not pay for the house, but he was true to his word and provided it for Susan. In today’s housing market and hard times, we all need a cane in the corner or at least the belief that one exists and could come our way. Merry Christmas!
