By C. S. Williams on Dec 18, 2016 From Classic Film Aficionados

Special does not do service to the accomplishments and the staying power of Miracle on 34th Street; as the measuring-tape said of Mary Poppins, “practically perfect in every way,” so too are the celluloid triumphs of this 1947, summer blockbuster, produced by 20th Century-Fox. The apex that Miracle ... Read full article

Facts about

In a separately filmed promotional trailer, Rex Harrison, Anne Baxter, Peggy Ann Garner and Dick Haymes, all of whom were appearing in other Twentieth Century-Fox productions at the time, but not in this one, discuss the merits of the film.
Both the actual Macy's and Gimbels department stores were approached by the producers for permission to have them depicted in the film. Both stores wanted to see the finished film first before they gave approval. If either store had refused, the film would have had to been extensively edited and reshot to eliminate the references. Fortunately at the test viewing, both businesses were pleased with the film and gave their permission.
The scenes at Macy's were shot on location at the main New York store on 34th Street itself. Shooting was complicated by the fact that the crew's power needs exceeded the store's electricity capacity and required additional power sources arranged in the store's basement.
