Happy Wednesday, Christmas Fanatics! As a special hump day treat, Anthony is joined by listeners Kim Cooper, Claude Bélanger, and Matt Spaulding – professional Santa Claus of “GreenMountainSanta.com” and cohost of the podcasts “Two Broke Geeks” and “The F.B.I.’s Most Wanted” – to rank the six most iconic live-action Santa Claus’ put to film thus far.
The Santa’s discussed in this episode are:
– Edmund Gwenn of 1947’s “Miracle on 34th Street”
– David Huddleston of 1985’s “Santa Claus: The Movie”
– Tim Allen of 1994’s “The Santa Clause”
– Richard Attenborough of 1994’s “Miracle on 34th Street”
– Ed Asner of 2003’s “Elf”
– Kurt Russell of 2018’s “The Christmas Chronicles”
Listen as they discuss their histories with each of these Santa’s and their respective movies and debate their performances – what they believe each of them did well, and what they felt detracted from each of them – before each of them individually rank each actor from the “worst” live action film Santa Claus to the best. Where do they agree and disagree? Are the four of them able to find common ground in their rankings? Find out all of this and much, much, much more. And regardless of where each of these actors and their iconic portrayals rank, one thing you can be certain of – even the “worst” on the list turns in an amazing performance and is worthy of the suit and the sleigh! This is one fun episode you want to be sure not to miss!
