Trivia: Miracle on 34th Street
  • Enforced Method Acting: Natalie Wood really did feel surprised when she tugged at Kris Kringle's beard, and saw him naturally react in minor pain.
  • Executive Meddling: The film was originally released in May despite being a Christmas film, due to an executive that believed people were more willing to see movies in May instead. This famously led to a marketing campaign that hid the Christmas themes of the film, including a trailer that instead of showing the film showed a fictional producer trying to figure out how to sell it while other contemporary stars raved about it. Fortunately, the film turned out to be a massive success anyway and actually ran long enough that it was still in theaters when Christmas actually rolled around.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The 1973 made-for-TV remake has yet to receive a DVD release. However, it has become available for Netflix streaming.
