A CHRISTMAS STORY
Saturday, December 14 at 7 p.m.
It’s 1940, in the northern Indiana. Nine-year-old Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley) wants only one thing for Christmas — an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB rifle with a compass in the stock. Between his younger brother Randy and having to handle school bully Scut Farkus, Ralphie doesn’t know how he’ll ever survive long enough to get the BB gun for Christmas. When Ralph asks his mother (Melinda Dillon) for a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas, she says, “No, you’ll shoot your eye out”.
Meanwhile The Old Man (Darren McGavin) just got a major award (a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg), and Mom is making sure The Old Man doesn’t come near her turkey, Ralphie’s friend gets his tongue stuck to a flag pole, and Ralphie utters the f-word in front of his father. Christmas is drawing nearer and Ralphie visits Santa at the department store in hopes of asking him for his dream gift.
