Best Answer

A fine example of a trick question! a Movie called Santa Claus was made sometime in the late fifties and perennially rerun- in the Yule season, ho ho ho! It was heavily advertised on Television, Radio and newspapers. The ads came on with a blitz- Santa Claus- everyone is waiting to see Santa Claus! In Eastman Colorscope. No cast of characters was listed in ANY of the ads. I guess they wanted to seal in the legend as tight as possible. If they listed an actor in the lead role- that would let the cat out of the bag. It was not a cartoon. Santa Claus was one of the very few dramatic films to have an anonymous cast! so be it.
