The Curious Case of Santa Claus (1982) Jon Pertwee of Doctor Who [VHS Rip (DivX)]
Here it is folks, just in time for Christmas, a rare and special treat that will appeal to all lovers of Christmas (and especially Doctor Who fans)...
The curious case of santa claus
A psychiatrist (John Pertwee, of Dr. Who fame) takes on the daunting task of psychoanalysing Santa Claus who is suffering an identity crisis. In the process they examine all the different myths and stories about Santa around the world and how they got thier start.
Interweaving facts and legends about the 4th century Greek monk named Nicholas, and how they changed and combined as they traveled throughout Europe before finally crossing the Atlantic to America, where he become known as Santa Claus, this gentle, heart-warming entry into the Edinburgh Film Festival helps us see this sometimes misunderstood figure in a new light, and perhaps even regain a bit of the true Christmas spirit.
