The Night Before Christmas

Available on Prime Video
This charming short film from 1946 is a complete narration of the poem Twas the Night Before Christmas a Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore. The father narrates the poem and, as it plays out, several cartoon segments are interspersed including dancing sugarplums while the children sleep and Santa and his reindeer flying the sleigh through the evening sky as they deliver the presents.
Director Edwin S. Porter
