Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
1 other mistake
Directed by: Les Mayfield
Starring: Richard Attenborough, J.T. Walsh, Dylan McDermott, Elizabeth Perkins
Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the film, when the drunk Santa falls off the parade float, you can see a sack full of presents on the back of the float. In the next shot, when people are lifting the sleigh off him, the presents have disappeared.
Kris: If you can't learn to accept ANYTHING on faith, then you are doomed for a life dominated by doubt.
Question: Is there any reason that for the re-make it was changed from Santa speaking to a little girl in Dutch to him speaking to a girl in sign language? It seemed like it would be less convincing this way, since it would not be uncommon for any department store Santa to know sign language.

Answer: The original Dutch girl was a World War II orphan. That wouldn't make sense in the newer remake. And why wouldn't a Santa know sign language? It would seem more common than Dutch.
