Movie Night at DSBA 2017 - MIracle on 34th Street
1.0 hour CLE credit
Delaware State Bar Association
DSB12132017MOVIE
Miracle on 34th Street is a 1947 American Christmas comedy-drama film written and directed by George Seaton and based on a story by Valentine Davies. In this Christmas classic, an old man going by the name of Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy's annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain's main store in midtown Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity. In 2005, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant". The CLE discussion following will discuss: Mental Health Commitment Hearings: Rights and Responsibilities and Recognizing, Preventing, and Responding to Elder Abuse.
