Description by OLDIES.com:
The Christmas Angel is a family story, hosted by Olivia Newton-John and Chip Davis. This made-for-TV special is the most elaborate ice skating show ever produced, starring Dorothy Hamill, Elvis Stojko, Tonia Kwiatkowski, and Rudy Galindo, with choreography by Randy Gardner. The timeless Christmas music by Mannheim Steamroller sets the perfect background for this ice skating spectacular.
The Christmas Angel is a classic tale of good triumphing over evil, told in an enchanting way with ice skaters portraying the characters. It is an original holiday story of a decorative angel that is stolen from atop the village Christmas tree by an evil gorgon on Christmas Eve. The presents come to life to rescue the angel and turn the gargon to good. Once the angel is rescued and placed back atop the tree, Christmas is once again restored.
Mannheim Steamroller performing Christmas songs, while Dorothy Hamill, Elvis Stojko and other top skaters depict a spectacular story on ice. The talented Olivia Newton-John narrates the holiday tale.
