This is the story of a master toymaker who discovers a magical kingdom of elves in the North Pole and becomes Santa Claus.

I played one of the elves in the movie. When Santa & Anya are shown the Elf Village for the first time & watch all the toy-making, Patch (the late Dudley More) & a small group of "elf musicians" are seen "playing" the music. Watch out for me at the top of an "elvish double-bass". The movie was available on DVD in the UK & I purchased a copy, having not seen it since it's release. I think it's a lovely Christmas film that deserved greater critical acclaim than it received. I'm glad to see that it is now becoming something of a cult movie, which should ensure it's existence for many years to come. Having viewed the movie this year (2016), I feel proud to have made a small contribution to a film that tells a timeless story with considerable integrity. David Huddleston who passed away recently was the perfect casting for Santa Claus.
