The Motion Picture Guide
Here is a beloved and heartwarming film that is shown regularly, and rightly so, every Christmas, a tale for young and old, even the cynical who won't stand a chance resisting the message and accepting the glowing image. Gwenn walks away with this film as the man who spreads the true meaning of Christmas and embodies the spirit of Yuletide... [He] gives one of the most charming, endearing performances in the history of film, an image so appealing that his gentle personality has been indelibly identified with the spirit of Santa Claus and Christmas ever since the completion of this superb production. He won an Oscar for this role, and there was never any doubt that he would. Christmas has been profiled in dozens of films, but seldom, if ever, has the Yuletide been so wonderfully presented.
