To my knowledge the last film Fred Astaire was involved with (I think he was 79 when he made this)& unfortunately it wasn't very good at all.
The first quarter of the film was interesting & unique & I believe the inexperienced director just didn't know how to direct it at all.
It started with 3 men in New York who had separate issues who all needed a Santa suit for a situation & then it just got confusing.
The stories made no sense & Fred Astaire appeared in 8 different roles, it started off as a good idea but unfortunately just fizzled out.
Great movie. Have on tape but would love on DVD!
When i saw this as a child i thought it was brilliant - it evokes memories of happy childhood days.
One of my favorite made-for-TV Christmas movies from the late 70's.
A trio of tales celebrating "The Man in the Santa Claus Suit", with a framing plot of Fred Astaire renting out a Santa Claus suit to three different men from his shop in New York City.
Story 1 - John Byner plays a good-hearted (but smelly) street person who uses his Santa Claus suit to commit robbery, but winds up celebrating Christmas with the family he was intending to rob.
Story 2 - Gary Burghoff rents a suit to express his love for the special girl in his life, in a romantic adventure which involves a department store runaround.
Story 3 - Bert Convy plays an absent father, who rents a suit to win back his young son's affection. It's a scene of a highrise Manhattan family drama.
In typical Christmas Movie style, the stories all resolve themselves nicely by the end. There is also a neat ending with Fred Astaire donning his own Santa Claus suit.
Where's the official DVD?
