I had some time and thought I see a classic - and watched the remake -& hated it ..why does the little girl have a lisp ? I went back to the original version .
What really stood out to me this time, is the Dutch girl scene...how, you felt the mother's embarrassment, her adopted daughter is telling her something that is not logical - but as a good mother, she brings her daughter to see Santa...and when Santa starts to talk in Dutch ..her face lights up !! and Nat.Wood's mouth falls to the floor !! then they start to sing ! This year , this one tugged at my heart ...i added the link-in case you forgot ..
