New on DVD: Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Tuesday, November 21st, will see the release of a Special Edition of MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET.

It has previously been released on DVD, but I've been holding off on a purchase in hopes of an edition just like this one, with a commentary track by Maureen O'Hara.

Other extras include an AMC BACKSTORY documentary and a 1955 television production starring Teresa Wright, Macdonald Carey, Thomas Mitchell, and Sandy Descher in the Natalie Wood role. I love the way DVDs make TV rareties such as this special available once more.

Unfortunately the set includes a disc with the computer-colorized version, but other than that, it's all good. :) Disc Two does contain the original version in beautiful black and white.

This film is a Thanksgiving Day tradition for many, inasmuch as the story begins at Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. I'm posting news of the release a day early in case any readers would like to pick it up for the holiday weekend.

If you don't mind waiting a while to receive it, Deep Discount DVD has the best price I've seen online.

Tuesday Update: Here's a lovely review of the set from Digitally Obsessed.
