>>A look back at the now cult classic 1983 feature, “A CHRISTMAS STORY” with guests SCOTT SCHWARTZ (Flick), ZACK WARD (Scut Farcus), and YANO ANAYA (Grover Dill).
If memory serves, the movie was not all that popular when it first came out. It wasn't until a cable network began running it that it became so popular.
I love this movie! I personally think the seeds for National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation blossomed in A Christmas Story.
Of course I watched it again this year, and with my kids.
We were a bit surprised, for some reason, when the occasional profanity slipped out, even though one of the major memorable scenes revolved around the ‘f’ word.
I asked my daughter, after one of those profanities was uttered, if she heard the “bad word” that was said.
She said she couldn’t understand what the characters were saying.
It then occurred to me that throughout the show they use nonsense “profanity” out of the father & Ralphie, and mix in the occasional real profanity, and to a kid that doesn’t hear those words, it ALL sounds like nonsense words.
There is another movie of an even greater vintage (1955) that I missed seeing this season. Anyone else remember “We’re No Angels”? It is a Humphrey Bogart movie for goodness sakes and a star cast on top of that with Peter Ustinov, Aldo Ray, Joan Bennett, Basil Rathbone, Leo G. Carroll AND directed by Michael Curtiz! With 500 channels, they can’t give us this good stuff?
Peter Billingsley grew up to be a handsome fellow.
TV Guide channel just aired a retrospective within the past couple weeks (probably repeated ad nauseam, and I don’t even know if it was original to this year).
