The Many Faces Of The Real Santa!

Yesterday we featured a quiz full of fake Santas, but today we move on to the real deal: cinematic depictions of Santa himself!

Yep, Santa is a popular guy in films, and not just as a costume or a disguise. I had plenty of films to choose from, especially when I asked my ScreenAnarchy colleagues for help. Nothing brings out the Christmas spirit as much as a request for help does, and so big was the gallery they gave me that... well, that was another reason to split it into two quizzes, rather than a single huge one.

So once again I'm going to use eleven pictures of a mythological character to make a quiz. Click through the images, and guess which movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb!
And I'll post the answers next Thursday, or earlier if someone gets all of them right...


James Marsh, Stuart Muller and Zach Gayne contributed to this story.

And here is a Santa as seen in Rare Exports.

This picture doesn't count yet for the quiz, as this not-quite-jolly guy isn't Santa yet. With proper care and training though... who knows? But for now, he'll just be our figurehead.

But all others Santas in here are part of the quiz, so please browse through the gallery: click on the edge of the picture to get the next one, and see how many of them all you can identify!
