Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Last night I watched Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. I got two boxes of DVDs for Christmas – one of old westerns, and the other of old “Science Fiction” movies, although at least half of these latter are rather spuriously classified as such. The Martians capture Santa Claus, because they want their kids to be happy. With a plot premise like that, it almost *has* to be a great movie.
