A Christmas Story – Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday… Remember “A Christmas Story”?

From the web site:

“Ralphie has to convince his parents, his teacher, and Santa that a Red Ryder B.B. gun really is the perfect gift for the 1940s”.

A Christmas StoryThis is based on the novel “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash” by Jean Shepherd.

The stars of the movie are: Peter Billingsley, Melinda Dillon, Darren McGavin

Two Reviews:

“A Christmas Story is a rare film about children yet for adults. While kids will definitely enjoy this Christmas-themed saga, adults will find a deeper level of depth than they may remember from seeing the film at a younger age.”

“A Christmas Story touches my heart as does no other film, and I know the reason for this is because it reminds me so much of my own 1950’s boyhood. For sure it strikes a nerve in persons of my generation. This is Bob Clark’s masterpiece and I know I am not the only person who feels this way.”
