Prior to preliminary production, Jerry Herman invited the production's cast and department heads to his home in Bel Air for an informal evening gathering. Bob Mackie had his costume sketches with him. Jerry used Bob's sketches for his and Angela Lansbury's initial presentation "Mrs. Santa Claus" for their CBS-TV Christmas project. Jerry's enthusiasm in showcasing his music established an energetic creative rapport. Following this gathering of their creative team, Jerry Herman's presence attending every meeting, being present at cast and dance rehearsals, (conducted at the Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio, two miles from Universal City Studios); Jerry's interest, his attention during the filming day and night schedule, established a creative energy with each individual's participation. Every individual involved had a spark of energy to accomplish their best effort in performing their job in the filming of this production. The crew asked for Jerry's cameo appearance performing on an upright piano. Terry Hughes put the post-card shot into the musical sequence. See more »

Excellent entertainment for kids
27 January 2007 | by (Malta) – See all my reviews

Well, what can I say but THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!! The magic of Christmas coupled with the excellent performance of Mrs Lansbury and all the cast, works miracles on my almost 1-year old twins who LOVE watching this movie. My son, Gabriel, recognises the movie from the very first notes of the introductory song while my daughter, Megan, is mesmerised by the music and the choreography. They spend the whole length of the movie in utter awe and complete silence, so when I need a break .. on goes Mrs Santa Claus!! In all honesty, I almost know it by heart myself - dialogue, song and all, considering that they watch it every day. Besides the benefit this movie has brought my family, I recommend watching this movie as it has all the right ingredients for wholesome, family fun. Magical Christmas scenery, catchy tunes, marvellous costumes, original plot, breathtaking choreography are all it takes to make the movie, in Augustus P Tavish's own words ...'OUTSTANDING' ...
