  1. Hello all,

    I am looking for a christmas present for someone and they wanted
    the 1974 TV version of Miracle on 34th Street that was aired on CBS,
    produced by Fox Home Entertainment.

    I was just curious if anyone knew if it was ever released, even on

    Please post replies to group. I get too much spam from bots when I
    post my email address.

    Thanks in advance,

    The IMDB says it is not available in any form, but they aren't always
    Good luck, hope you find it.

  4. I was wondering just the other day why we never see it.

    I was still enough of a kid when it aired originally that I thought
    it was okay. Well known tv actors of the time, like David Harman
    and Sebastian Cabot (Mr. French). My memory says it aired for
    a number of seasons, then disappeared. Though, I know it
    ran here in Montreal on one of the French channels long after
    I last saw it in English (though I can't remember if it was
    a yearly thing, or simply reappeared years later).

    I'm not sure what the point of the 1994 remake was (except that
    studios have a tendency to remake things). The original does
    stand up well all these years later, though I suppose some might
    dislike the lack of color. The 1974 one, I suppose I may excuse
    it because I was young at the time, rather than question why
    they had to remake it then.

    Maybe the fact that it was made for TV has somehow kept it
    from video. It seems like made for tv movies are less likely
    to make it to video.

    I'd like to see "The Man in the Santa Claus Suit" again,
    along with "An American Christmas Carol", and likely many more
    made for TV Christmas movies that haven't been commonly seen
    in a long time.

  5. . The original does
    huh? Anything made for U.S. tv in 1974 would have been made in color and
    broadcast in color.

    It's more likely the lack of stereo sound why it's not broadcast on the
    networks today.
