Czechoslovak animator Karel Zeman made his directorial debut with "Vánoční sen" ("A Christmas Dream" in English), which he co-directed with his brother Bořivoj. The version that I saw had dialogue and scenes of Santa Claus, and I understand the original Czech version had neither.* The movie itself has kind of a bland plot, as a girl dreams that her rag doll comes to life and puts on a show. The stop motion animation is impressive, but that's really the only reason to watch this. Nonetheless, I do hope to see more of Karel Zeman's work.
*Similarly, the original Japanese release of "Godzilla" didn't feature Raymond Burr's character.
