Plot: . “By
chance, Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home,
gets a job working as Santa for Macy's. Kris unleashes
waves of good will with Macy's customers and the commercial
world of New York City by referring parents to other
stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked
for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy's vocational
counselor, who plots to have Kris shanghaied to Bellevue
Psychiatric Hospital, Kris ends up in a court competency
hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl's belief
in Santa. In a dramatic decision, the court confirms
Kris as the true Santa, allowing Susan and countless
other children to experience the joy of childhood fantasy.”
