2. That Santa looks like the old character actor C. Aubrey Smith

He was in a lot of films in the 30's and early 40'. He looked kind of frightening but usually played a lovely old English gentleman - in most films he had some sort of military background. He's one of my favorites.

He does look like C. Aubrey Smith - he is one of my favorites, as well!

6. I had just watched him in a movie called 'Beyond Tomorrow'

He had a most impressive career. I didn't realize he was born in 1863!

9. You realize that's a commercial photo, right?

Kid posed on fake donkey, winter scene painted in back...

Somebody made a buck off this.

10. Yes... Why it was described as a "Santa Photo"

 

I honestly thought most people would get that.
