The film stars David Huddleston, Dudley Moore, John Lithgow, Burgess Meredith and Judy Cornwell and tells the story of how a common woodcutter (Huddleston) becomes the legendary Father Christmas.
But the holiday season comes under threat when rebellious elf Patch (Moore) runs away to modern day New York where he find himself working for a villainous toy manufacturer (Lithgow). Could this be the end of Christmas or will the festive spirit prevail?
