Not Rated | | Comedy, Drama, Family
When a nice old man who claims to be Santa Claus is institutionalized as insane, a young lawyer decides to defend him by arguing in court that he is the real thing.
The Dutch girl spoke true Dutch, but with a heavy American accent.
Would you please tell her that you're not really Santa Claus, that actually is no such person?
Kris Kringle: Well, I hate to disagree with you, but not only IS there such a person, but here I am to prove it.
When Kris leaves Alfred in the cafeteria and storms into Sawyer's office he has nothing in his hand. During his entire conversation with Sawyer his right hand is always free to gesture. The umbrella he uses to bop Sawyer on the head was sitting on the desk and he can be seen picking it up just before hitting Sawyer.
