The holiday film A Christmas Story, first released in 1983, has become a bona fide Christmas perennial, gaining in stature and fame with each succeeding year. Its affectionate, wacky, and wryly realistic portrayal of an American family´s typical Christmas joys and travails in small-town Depression-era Indiana has entered our imagination and our hearts with a force equal to It´s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. This audio prodcution of A Christmas Story gathers together in one hilarious volume the gems of autobiographical humor that Jean Shepherd drew upon to create this enduring film. Here is young Ralphie Parker´s shocking discovery that his decoder ring is really a device to promote Ovaltine; his mother and father´s pitched battle over the fate of a lascivious leg lamp; the unleashed and unnerving savagery of Ralphie´s duel in the snow with the odious bullies Scut Farkas and Grover Dill; and, most crucially, Ralphie´s unstoppable campaign to get Santa, or anyone else, to give him a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle. Who cares that the whole adult world is telling him, ´´You´ll shoot your eye out, kid´´? The pieces that comprise A Christmas Story, previously published in the larger collections In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash and Wanda Hickey´s Night of Golden Memories, coalesce in a magical fashion to become an irresistible piece of Americana, quite the equal of the film in its ability to warm the heart and tickle the funny bone. 1.
