The Man in the Santa Claus Suit (1979)

Directed by Corey Allen
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

Fred Astaire is the owner of a costume shop where he rents a Santa suit to three customers during the holidays. Their stories make up the film in this episodic made-for-TV Christmas movie. Gary Burghoff, who can't quite shake his famous MASH character, is a shy school teacher trying to find the courage to ask his sexy model neighbor to marry him; Bert Convy tries to reconnect with his son and wife; and John Byner is a homeless man trying to hide from the mob. Astaire is, by far, the best part of the movie in multiple roles.
