A Christmas Story
is a wonderful, funny film! A holiday must-see.
If you've not seen it, of course it will be shown again on tv this year. But, do yourself a favor and rent or buy the dvd in widescreen. Better picture and no commercials!
Of course, I'm a bit biased since much of the film was filmed in Cleveland...the female elf in the department store scene (the one that snarls, "Get goin', kid!") was a customer at the video store where I worked years ago. The house in Ohio City where the exteriors were filmed has been restored and is now a small museum.
One of my favorite parts of the movie is when younger brother Randy is so bundled up in his snowsuit that he can't get up after falling in the snow!
