Memorabilia of the Night *Christmas Special*

14 replies 2 views Edited Dec 1, 2006
A Christmas Story

The film relates the tale of Ralphie Parker (played by Peter Billingsley), who wants a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas (specifically, "an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock and 'this thing', which tells time") and will go to any lengths to get it despite the numerous adult admonitions of "you'll shoot your eye out." Over the course of the film, Ralphie hides a Red Ryder advertisement in his mother's magazine, fibs about the spotting of a dangerous animal in the neighborhood, blurts his desire outright, writes a theme on the subject, and asks an impatient Santa just as the department store closes.
Subplots include the Old Man (Darren McGavin) entering a contest and winning a "major award" in the form of a lamp in the shape of a woman's leg complete with fish-net stockings (much to his wife's displeasure), Ralphie getting his Little Orphan Annie secret decoder pin, and Ralphie dealing with the neighborhood bully, Scut Farkus, played by Zack Ward. There are also numerous vignettes, including the Old Man's battle with the furnace, Ralphie not saying "fudge" in a moment of stress, and disaster with the Christmas dinner, courtesy of the Bumpuses' dogs. One memorable scene involves a risky dare, which Ralphie watches with the others, over whether or not a person's tongue immediately sticks to a pole covered with ice. When Flick responds to the "triple dog dare" and sticks out his tongue, he is proven wrong, and begins to scream in terror. Several fantasy sequences depict Ralphie's daydreams of glory and vindication, including the vanquishing of prison-striped villains, an extremely good grade for his written theme about the BB gun, and parental remorse over a case of "soap poisoning".
