We were a fan of the remake but you just can't beat Maureen O'Hara's "Miracle on 34th Street."
Christmas Day itself may be over again for another year but that doesn't mean that the festive films are done for 2018. In fact, we'd argue that the best one is yet to come as today, Wednesday, December 26, we are going to be treated to "Miracle on 34th Street."
And not the remake either but the original movie with one of the best Irish actresses of all time, Maureen O'Hara.
Featuring on Film 4 today at 11 am, this Christmas classic is the perfect way to start off your Stephen's Day and remind yourself of the magic of Christmas.
While the reboot was released while I was still only three years old, it is the older 1947 version of the film, starring Maureen O’Hara, that could possibly be the most treasured and greatest of all the Christmas movies ever made.
Released at a time when divorce is not as common or as accepted as it is now, the very fact that O’Hara’s character Doris Walker is not only a divorced woman but a highly successful divorced woman, holding her own among her male colleagues with no question of her ability, is also one of the reasons why this could have been one of the most feminist movies made at the time.
