Mrs. Santa Claus [Import]
Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Much closer to Hello, Dolly! than your usual Christmas special, Mrs. Santa Claus joins two distinct genres: holiday family fare and the Broadway musical. This song-studded extravaganza was especially designed for TV by Broadway legend Jerry Herman, whose songs are just as incorrigibly catchy on the small screen as they are on the stage. Herman uses one of his favorite leading ladies from the theater, Angela Lansbury, in a tale of Santa's "invisible wife," who takes the reindeer off for an impulsive week-long adventure in New York City. Unexpectedly becoming a suffragette and labor organizer (it's set in the early 20th century), Mrs. Claus twinkles merrily at all who cross her path. This is a problem, dramatically speaking, because what's compelling about someone who twinkles all the time? The costumes are by Bob Mackie (duh), the choreography by Chicago director Rob Marshall. And just try to get the melodies out of your head. --Robert Horton

"Mrs. Santa Claus", opens in 1910 with the beginning of the busy build up to Christmas Eve but we find that all is not well in Santa's private nest. Mrs Claus feels left out of the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season and her husband is anything but the jolly old man beloved of children all over the world as he is neglectful of her needs at this time. When she proposes a new route for Santa to take on Christmas Eve that will considerably cut down his flying time her ideas are brushed off which inspires this spunky woman to take the sleigh complete with Santa's reindeers, and do a test run prior to Christmas Eve to check it out herself. Unfortunately caught in stormy conditions Mrs. Claus to forced to make an emergency landing in New York where Cupid injures one of his feet when landing. Stranded in New York Mrs.Read more ›
Really, the songs are terrific, and you can watch the movie over and over again! I watched it four or five times the first day I got it! It's just one of those movies you can memorize the dialouge for, and yet, still sit, watch, quote and enjoy!(Probably mostly due to Angela!)
I was a little shocked at first that the movie was taking place in 1910, but the costumes were incredible! I especially loved the exquisite red dress "Mrs. North" (Mrs. Claus...Angela) wears at the Policemen's Charity Ball!!! Coincedentally, that's also when she sings one of the best songs in the film.
The plot is easy to follow, and it really holds your attention. You just can't wait to see what Mrs. Claus will do next!
I had to give it to a friend to rip in hopes I could play it on my computer. It was such an amazing movie and it is a shame that it cannot be played in region 1.
Fortunately I didn't pay much but still I spent money on a dvd that cannot be played in Canada.
However, the company was really fair. They refunded my money, including the shipping costs - so I will deal with them again - in the future.
