Movie Review by Movie Addict
March 19th, 2007

The original "Secret" movie

I can't believe this movie has not been reviewed.

It just wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't see this film. I never get tired of watching it. Edmund Gwenn was fantastic as Santa and got a well-deserved Academy Award for his performance. This would have been the Best Picture of 1947, had it not come up against Gentleman's Agreement.

The supporting cast was also excellent. Maureen O'Hara, John Payne, young Natalie Wood, and William Frawley all gave performances that make this picture one that cannot be duplicated. Don't buy into those remakes. The original black and white with a cast that can't be topped is the one to watch.

This is a movie for the kid in all of us and we better not forget that magic. Besides, it divulged "The Secret" long before the current bunch.

"I believe. I believe"
