A CHRISTMAS STORY
"YOU'LL SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT!" at least that’s what little Ralphie Parker is told when he asks his parents for a Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Air Rifle for Christmas. Hilarity ensues as Ralphie, along with his friend, Flick, try to convince Ralphie’s parents and even his teacher, Miss Shields, that a Red Ryder BB gun is the perfect Christmas gift for a nine-year-old boy. This film is rated PG and runs approximately 94 minutes.
A Christmas Story aired before Thanksgiving (on November 18) in 1983.
The movie opened on 883 screens.
Director, Bob Clark, had to agree to make a horror movie for the film studio as a trade off for making 'A Christmas Story'.
The movie was filmed in Cleveland, Ohio, and many of the townspeople temporarily donated their antique cars to help the film appear more authentic for its 1940s time period.
