Santa Claus Conquers The Martians (1964)

Only kids with no discerning tastes could like this low budget, cheesy film. The Martians kidnap Santa and two Earth kids to solve some problems with their own kids on Mars.

It runs a little over an hours and is full of bad special effects and wooden dialogue. I saw this movie as part of an all night movie marathon at Northwestern University around Halloween several years ago. The college guys kept yelling out their devotion to Pia Zadora, who appears as one of the Martian kids. She looks to be about seven years old in this film. Ned Wertimer, who later appeared as the conniving doorman on the 1970's sitcom "The Jeffersons" appears as a reporter. Really silly song at the end of the film, with a bunch of kids singing "Santy Claus".
