CHRISTMAS STORY, A
All Ralphie wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder BB gun, but the only response he gets from his mother is, "You'll shoot your eye out." For those who've experienced this film, it's hard to imagine that phrase without hearing the voice of Jean Shepherd, the narrator and writer of this classic Christmas tale. No matter how many times audiences see it, they keep coming back for the brilliant comedic turns by Peter Billingsley, Melinda Dillon and Darren McGavin.
DIR/SCR/PROD Bob Clark; SCR Leigh Brown, Jean Shepherd, from his book "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash"; PROD René Dupont. U.S./Canada, 1983, color, 94 min. RATED PG
