Trailer from the re-release in 2011:

As one YouTube wag noted, this is truly "The Second Greatest Story Ever Told".

Fully restored to its original, eight-color-box Crayola glory and bumped down to a 1.33:1 aspect ratio so you can see all the Hidden Stuff that was screen-cropped from the original (there is no Hidden Stuff), the only real problem with Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, beyond the plot and acting and sets and "writing" the title.

I mean, kinda gives the ending away, doesn't it?

Anyway, this permanent occupant of the 2:00 AM movie room slot at every science fiction convention I have ever attended pairs well with domestic beer, mescaline and sleep deprivation.

Or so I am told.
