6. 'Miracle On 34th Street' (1947)
Though generally considered a Christmas movie, "Miracle on 34th Street" actually starts when Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) discovers that the man hired to play Santa in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is drunk. He complains to the event director (Maureen O'Hara) and she hires him on the spot to take over the role for the remainder of the holiday season. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Twentieth Century Fox)
