Miracle on 34th Street (1947):
Some choice lines:
Fred Gailey: "All my life I've wondered something, and now's my chance to find out. I'm going to find the answer to a question that's puzzled the world for centuries. Does Santa Claus sleep with his whiskers outside or in?"
Kris Kringle: "Always sleep with them out. Cold air makes them grow."
Fred Gailey: "Your Honor, every one of these letters is addressed to Santa Claus. The Post Office has delivered them. Therefore the Post Office Department, a branch of the Federal Government, recognizes this man, Kris Kringle, to be the one and only Santa Claus."
Judge Harper: "Since the United States Government declares this man to be Santa Claus, this court will not dispute it. Case Dismissed."
