Classic Christmas fantasy starring a sublimely-cast Edmund Gwenn as a lovable department store Santa Claus who sets out to prove to a child that he is the real Father Christmas. This deservedly scooped three Academy Awards - one for Gwenn - and also featured an eight-year-old Natalie Wood. A genuinely heart-warming tale given a harder edge with its anti-rampant consumerism message.
