Product Details

Product Description


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

If ever there was a performer who fits the description "They get better with age", it would definately be the multi-talented Angela Lansbury. A part of the Hollywood scene since the 1940's Angela has proven time and time again what an outstanding actress she is in the dramatic, comic and musical genres . The hit TV series "Murder She Wrote", really cemented her mature stardom and this splendid musical Christmas movie "Mrs. Santa Claus" proved to be the ideal vehicle for her seasoned talents where we finally get a story that focuses on the real "power behind the throne" at the North Pole, none other than Mrs. Claus herself. This lavish Christmas movie is in all ways an absolute feast for the eyes with beautiful colour, a glowing leading lady ideally cast, lavish costumes and hearty musical numbers that bring to mind the great old Hollywood musicals of yesteryear. In short perfect entertainment for the festive season.
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another EXQUISITE performance from Angela! June 16 2003
Format:VHS Tape
You can never go wrong with Angela Lansbury. I've always known it I guess, but, when you watch this movie and wish you still believed in Santa because of Mrs. Claus, it kind of reminds you!;)
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Jan. 17 2013
By Sami
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Poor rating given as I could not view this DVD as it was for the wrong region and had to be returned. I felt this was a waste of time in ordering and could have been avoided if the sender had been up front about this fact when ordering. To not inform someone that the DVD would not play in the region where the order originated is to me a bit underhanded. As well, when the sender was contacted and asked if the correct region was available this question was avoided and only information on how to return the item was received. I was very disappointed as my original VHS was destroyed this year by my old VCR and I have watched Mrs Santa Claus every year since its original release and was willing to pay a bit extra for the DVD. However, there are limits to what I am willing to pay for a DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong region April 4 2014
By Karen S
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this dvd hoping to watch it on my dvd player to find that it would not play due to the region problem.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars This buy didn't work out for me. Jan. 31 2014

I love this movie, so when I saw it - I jumped. Unfortunately, when it arrived, the DVD was set for another region. I couldn't play it on my TV or any of my computers. Would have been great if I lived in Great Britain, but I live 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.
