The Man in the Santa Claus Suit Reviews:

This movie starring Fred Astaire and Gary Burghoff (M*A*S*H) is a nice Christmas original. Most fresh vacation movies are less than entertaining, but this movie provides a unique, rfreshing storyline line. The Boy in the Santa Claus Suit is one of many films that I feel support celebrate the season. It provokes thought about what is really necessary to every of us this vacation season. I am amazed this movie has not received better ratings. In this time of Santa movies, I feel that some of the classics deliever a more intellectual view supporting to define the meaning of Christmas. It may not be a blockbuster, but it is one of my family's staples.


I am sure not many of you have heard of this movie. I first saw it on Christmas Eve in the 1980's. As far as Christmas Films go it does stand out and is various and to see Fred Astaire in such a various role than what we are used to seeing him in is charming. If you receive a possibility watch this and receive a tiny Christmas Spirit. This does not have any of the wiz bang unique results of today's Christmas movies. What it lacks in that zone it definitely makes up for in heart and showing what it really means to have the Christmas spirit. If you were a fanatic of M.A.S.H. you will also receive a kick out of this as one of the another stars of the film is Gary Burghoff who played "Radar O'Reilly" in that series. Gary did not really do too many another projects so this is also a treat. Also of note is a young Pat Petersen who soon went on to become a heartthrob in the hit 80's series Knots Landing. The true joy here though is seeing Fred Astaire create a unbelievable and heartfelt entry into the Christmas pantheon of movies.


Unbelievable Christmas film for the entire family. Three storyline arcs tied together by one mysterious boy at a costume store who pops up at odd times throughout the film to give advice.Not as perfect as A Christmas Story, but close.
