Behind the Scenes: Miracle on 34th Street
Christmas night I had a hankering for a classic Christmas story but one set in New York. I own a few classic Christmas themed films so I found Miracle on 34th Street (1947), put it in my dvd player, and slipped blissfully into classic film heaven.
While watching the film I began to get curious about the making of the film and wondering if I could find interviews from the cast speaking about it in interviews. I couldn't find anything online at all. I do know that Maureen O'Hara is 94 now and although she does participate in some classic film events I haven't heard her thoughts and memories on this film either.
That made me think about behind the scenes photos and that if I found some perhaps it could give me an insight on what it may have been like during the making of it. I ended up finding a small handful and from what I can see it seemed like everyone got along well and doted on a very young Natalie Wood.
I love behind the scenes photos of films. In it way it gives a peak into what the experience of making it may have been like.
What classic film would you love to know more about? Did you watch any specific classic holiday film for Christmas day?
