Favorite Christmas Movies 6

You all know it, you all have seen it. It now plays for 24 hours straight on TBS on Christmas Eve. No one knew how popular it would become when it first came out on film in 1983. It is A Christmas Story.

I will just steal the bio from Movies.com about this classic.

Little Ralphie wants nothing more for Christmas than a Red Ryder BB gun, but everyone keeps telling him that he'll shoot his eye out. Over the days and weeks leading up to the fabled day, Ralphie keeps hoping to convince his parents and the department store Santa, all the while evading school bullies and getting caught for saying "the queen mother of dirty words."

I got a lot of video for this... oh were to start?

The Trailer...

Commentary from the DVD:

Commentary on the bunny suit...

For a lot of movie clips, go to Turner Classic Movies.

How about the Dinner scene?

How about Countdown's news report about the house used in filming the movie being remodeled and opened for touring in Ohio?

The Santa scene...

The flagpole...

How about Bunnies acting out A Christmas Story in 30 seconds???

And... um... someone uploaded the entire movie so here is the first part, you can click through to YouTube to easily find the rest of the movie, look for parts 2, 3, 4, and 5. I doubt this stays on very long with copyright infringement and all.

I could do this all day because this movie is EVERYWHERE on the net. So I will stop now... :)
