Trivia

The Debbie Reynolds' Dance Studio, located on Lankershim Boulevard, adjacent Universal Studios, was the rehearsal studio used by choreographer Rob Marshall, and (sister) Sarah M. Miles. The art department brought into the rehearsal space, and rotated all the necessary prop tables, stools, front bars, benches, which were used in the production dance numbers. The director Terry Hughes, the director of photography Stephen M. Katz, and Jerry Herman, attended every day of the six week preliminary production dance rehearsals and staging routines developed for the musical. See more »

Cute,Enjoyable,& even Tactful to different faiths.
3 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Angela Lansbury does another good lead role in a TV film as she does any film.Mrs. Clause is not being paid attention to by her husband Santa at The North Pole and so she decides to take a trip of her own as a good cause for Christmas and for shortly before Christmas comes.Yes as My Mom,Mary E.(Garvey)Baer & I do agree it's very cute & even interesting as to how Mrs.Clause influences all of the people upon arrival & even before she does how all of the people are dancing & singing in the streets & including the Jewish People outside of their Synagogue & how she inspires them as well.Also in doing so it shows how even though faiths are different people are still all the same inside. It's also a very good follow up of the time in history in which it's placed in US History as well as in the streets of Brooklyn in 1910. Including how Mrs. Lowenstein had said "I must say I enjoy the festivities even more than I should." Then in addition to this how one women on Avenue A is demonstrating how woman aren't allowed to vote & of which is why even though she's Jewish she had proposed a Christmas toast because admittedly she has the biggest mouth on Avenue A & it makes her cause good for a number of good things as well.It was on Dec.25,1999 that I worked on my first Christmas ever & it was @ a Movie Theater & I had even enjoyed working on it even more than I had anticipated that I would.

Truthfully, Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a. "Ste".
