Since I've been posting about Christmas and Christmas Shopping this week, I cannot possibly go without writing about one of my all-time favorite movies, A Christmas Story, starring Peter Billingsley as Ralphie Parker.
Set in small town America, it tells the story of a little boy whose only wish is to get a Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas. As you can imagine, his repeated requests are met with repeated admonishments of "you'll shoot your eye out!" But, in the true indomitable spirit of a child he will not be dissuaded. Not even by the man himself - Santa Clause. The video below shows one of my favorite parts; second only to the tire changing scene. But, of course, there's also the bully scene and the...
"I can't put my arms down"
and the infamous soap scene.
Far too many scenes to mention. Be sure to rent/buy the movie this holiday season. In the meantime...
