It's a Winter Wonderland Wednesday down in The Dungeon, and since there's been so many Christmas movies made, I just thought I'd give you a random sampling of Santa interpretations that have shown up on the big screen over the years.
From 1950, here's Santa as portrayed by a puppet from the Mabel Beaton Marionettes!
This odd film was called "The Spirit Of Christmas!"
In this 1951 short called "Santa And The Fairy Snow Queen," this snoozing Santa Claus was played by Edmund (Adventures Of Superman) Penney.
I decided not to split hairs and make any distinction between the real Santa Claus and guys just dressing up and acting like him, like Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye here in........
..........."White Christmas" from 1954.
This 1959 Mexican Santa was played by José Elías (La Loba) Moreno in K. Gordon Murray's holiday creepfest simply titled "Santa Claus."
In 1989 they came out with part three of a sick Santa with a completely different personality called..........
In 1995 we have Mark (The Genie From Down Under) Mitchell as Santa in "The Munster's Scary Little Christmas."
Masterful cartoon voice over artist Sam (National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) McMurray as Herman Munster has to give it a shot too.
"Jingle All The Way" featured a host of Santas including Jim Belushi......
2007 brought us "Black Santa's Revenge."
In the 2011 feature "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," Richard (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) Riehle is Santa Claus!
