Santa Quiz – guessing closed

I know it’s not December yet, but the holiday season has arrived.  Let’s see if you can identify these movies by their Santas (8 points) and/or the actor’s name (2 points).

Please play along with us.  For everyone who plays an extra $ goes to the winner and the everyone is entered for a special prize.  Just leave a comment with your guesses before noon on Saturday and don’t google the answers.

This will be the last quiz of 2011 (unless I throw one in for fun in December).  Next week I’ll announce the 2 winners (the leader and a randomly chosen participant).  In January, new quizzes will return (it’s going to be board game month I think :))

1.   The Santa Claus (1994) Tim Allen

2.  Elf (2003) Ed Asner

3.  Trading Places (1983) Dan Aykroyd

4.  A Christmas Story (1983) Jeff Gillen

5.  Miracle on 34th Street (1947) Edmund Gwenn

6.  Bad Santa (2003) Billy Bob Thornton

7.  The Silent Partner (1978) Christopher Plummer

8.  The Night They Saved Christmas (1984) Art Carney

9.  The Ref (1994)

10.  Miracle on 34th Street (1994) Richard Attenborough
