Adapted from a memoir by humorist Jean Shepherd (who narrates), the film centers on Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley), a young boy living in 1940s Indiana, desperately yearning for a Red Rider BB gun for Christmas. Despite protests from his mother (Melinda Dillon) that he'll shoot his eye out, Ralphie persists, unsuccessfully trying to enlist the assistance of both his teacher and Santa Claus. All the while, Ralphie finds himself dealing with the constant taunts of a pair of bullies and trying to not get in the middle of a feud between his mother and father (Darren McGavin) regarding a sexy lamp. Matthew Tobey, RoviHide synopsis

This was purchased as a Christmas surprise for my husband, who is definitely more a fan of this movie than I. However, I must say that a "second look" on my part gave me a greater appreciation of not only the actors in their parts, but also the very real foibles & fears of everyday people in time & place.
The VHS tape is in very good condition, including its package.
A fun film for the whole family, set in the mid 1950's. The characters are each wonderful, acting is great and every one can relate to the story. I saw it on TV this year, bought the film and watched again 2x. Once you start watching, it is hard to stop.
I first saw "A Christmas Story" when I was seven years old. I've always enjoyed it! It is my all-time favorite Christmas movie. I never miss it and sometimes I watch it even when it's not Christmas. I never get tired of watching it!
