Miracle on 34th Street

Corrected entry: In the final courtroom scene after all of the letters have been placed on the judge's desk, how was he able to sound the gavel if his bench is several layers deep in letters? You can hear the gavel sound again when he says "case dismissed" in the wide shot.

Correction: He could always bang the gavel on the front (vertical) part of the desk. This would be a plausible occurrence, unconventional, but not an unlikely choice under the circumstances.

Corrected entry: The Dutch Christmas song that is sung with the war orphan from Holland is in fact not a Christmas song but a Sinterklaas song. Sinterklaas is an entirely different holiday, celebrated on the 5th of December and has nothing to do with Christmas.

Correction: "Sinterklass" day, celebrated on Dec. 6 (not 5), is the Feast of St. Nicholas according to the Christian calendar. St. Nick is of course Santa Claus, and many countries celebrate that feast with gifts and parties.

Mr. Shellhammer: But... but maybe he's only a little crazy like painters or composers or... or some of those men in Washington.



When Dr. Sawyer is giving Kris the exam, during the part where Kris is doing the physical coordination test, we see Kris from Sawyer's point of view, and Sawyer is drumming his fingers. When the shot switches to Kris's, he is fingering his eyebrow. When it switches back, fingers drumming. Finally, when it switches back again, his hands are neatly folded in front of him.
