When this eventually came to nothing, Dudley Moore suggested his friend Burgess Meredith for the role, which he in the end won.
At the time of the film's announcement in the middle of , the British Press carried reports that diminutive actors such as David Jason , Patrick Troughton and Norman Wisdom would be cast alongside Dudley as fellow Elves.
This ultimately came to nothing. The elves in the film are portrayed as legendary beings known as the Vendequm. Vinge , the elves keep watch over all that happens in the world that borders their own magical realm.
The Vendequm are described as being extremely fond of children since, after all, only children can see them, due to the innocence of their youth.
The elves are fond of making things for children, and so they often journeyed out into the children's world, leaving their newly crafted toys where children would find them.
According to the novel, with the passing of each new century , and as civilizations continued to rise and fall, it became more and more difficult and dangerous for the elves to venture too far out into the human world.
Thus, the vast majority of the toys the elves made could not be given out, and were left to gather dust in their magnificent storeroom, the Toy Tunnel.
The novel also describes how, on a certain long-winter's night, the oldest and wisest elf of all, the Ancient One, foresaw the arrival of a man whose love for children would be equal to that of the elves.
The Ancient One believed that this man would be the one to whom the elves would grant full immortality , along with the ability to deliver the elves' gifts to children all over the world.
In addition to Patch, Dooley, Puffy, Boog, Honka, and Vout, the film's screenplay and cast listing features three additional elves: Groot, the Elves' Senior Chef ; Goober, the head of the Elves' tailoring shop, who crafts Santa's full red robes; and Goobler, who trains several of his fellow elves in the art of painting toys with their own beards.
Chicago Sun-Times critic Roger Ebert noted some positive points to the film, writing that the film "does an interesting job of visualizing Santa's workshop" and Santa's elves.
He also praised the film's special effects , particularly the New York City fly-over sequence involving Santa. Ebert also had some praise for Lithgow's "nice, hateful performance", but wrote that "the villain is not drawn big enough.
Vincent Canby of The New York Times was less positive than Ebert, calling the production "elaborate and tacky". He described the film as having "the manner of a listless musical without any production numbers".
Unlike Ebert, he offered little praise for the film's production design. Canby quipped that "Santa's workshop must be the world's largest purchaser of low-grade plywood" and that the flyover sequences with Santa "aren't great.
In his book Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas , critic Alonso Duralde lists Santa Claus: The Movie in his chapter of worst Christmas films ever.
His reasons include weak plot, garish production design, blatant product placement particularly for McDonald's , though Coke and Pabst Blue Ribbon are also prominent , and scenery-chewing overacting on the part of Lithgow.
Duralde ultimately concludes that the film is "a train-wreck of a Christmas film that's so very wrong that you won't be able to tear yourself away from it.
John Lithgow, in a interview, said, "It's just one of the tackiest movies I've ever been in. It seemed cheesy and it certainly never stuck It is huge over there.
