Journey through the eyes of one skeptical young girl convinced that Santa Claus does not exist, and experience the magic of Christmas as she learns dreams do come true, when Miracle On 34th Street debuts on Blu-ray Disc October 6 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The original enchanting Oscar winning 1947 black-and-white classic and the 1994 remake will be released separately in stunning high definition for the first time.   When the man assigned to play Santa in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is found intoxicated Kris Kringle is hired to take his place, and does such an impressive job, he is appointed to continue the role at Macy’s flagship store on 34th street in New York City. Insistent that he truly is Santa Claus, Kringle is faced with disheartening cynicism from children, their parents and Macy’s executives, and ultimately forced to undergo psychological evaluations. Determined to prove himself, he manages to rekindle the miracles and enchantment of Christmas and make believers of them all.   Starring Maureen O’Hara (The Parent Trap), John Payne (Kansas City Confidential), Edmund Gwenn (The Trouble With Harry) in his Oscar-winning performance as Kris Kringle, and Academy Award nominee** Natalie Wood (West Side Story), the original Miracle On 34th Street is one of the most endearing and beloved holiday classics. Ranked ninth by the American Film Institute on its AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Cheers list, in 2005, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” 

The Blu-ray Disc is loaded with bonus features including commentary by silver screen legend Maureen O’Hara, a making of featurette, a historical overview of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and more.   The modern John Hughes production retelling stars Golden Globe nominee*** Elizabeth Perkins (Big), Golden Globe winner Dylan McDermott (Best Actor, “The Practice”), Oscar winner Richard Attenborough (Best Director, Ghandi) and Mara Wilson (Matilda).  

Synopsis: Six-year-old Susan doubts childhood’s most enduring miracle, Santa Claus. Her mother told her the “secret” of Santa a long time ago, so Susan does not expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department store Santa, who is convinced he is the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all – something to believe in.
