In today's NY Post...Macy's and Natalie Wood
Page 30 of today's NY Post recommends visiting Santa at Macy's if visiting Manhattan this holiday season, and suggests sitting on Santa's lap, claiming it's a holiday tradition started by Natalie Wood in 1947's "Miracle on 34th Street".
With the remake of "Miracle" in the 1990's, Macy's had refused to participate, claiming some things remain classic and you don't mess with them...mainly, Macy's and Natalie in the ORIGINAL "Miracle on 34th Street". I still want to research whose idea it ever was to remake such a classic movie. Imagine another actor other than Jimmy Stewart playing George Bailey in "It's a Wonderful Life" -- it just can't work.
