‘A Christmas Story’ Movie Celebrates 30th Anniversary [VIDEO]

There a a handful of holiday movies that seem to me America’s favorites, and one of them is the 1983 film, “A Christmas Story”. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the film, and if you haven’t seen it, here’s a brief preview.

According to Wikipedia:

“A Christmas Story is a 1983 American Christmas comedy film based on the short stories and semi-fictional anecdotes of author and raconteur Jean Shepherd, based on his book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash, with some elements derived from Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories. It was directed by Bob Clark. The film has since become a holiday classic and is shown numerous times on television during the Christmas season on the network TBS, often in a 24-hour marathon.

In 2012, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

Nine-year-old Ralph “Ralphie” Parker (Peter Billingsley) wants only one thing for Christmas: a Red Ryder BB Gun with a compass in the stock, and “this thing which tells time” (a sundial).”

According to TBS, here is when “A Christmas Story” marathon begins:

“Tuesday, December 24th, 8:00 pm est”
