A Christmas Story
Director: Bob Clark Run Time: 94 min. Format: DCP Rating: PG Release Year: 1983
Starring: Peter Billingsley, Darren McGavin, Melinda Dillon, Ian Petrella
While Bob Clark holds a special place in our dark hearts for his inventive horror flicks like the scary treat Black Christmas, it’s his contribution to the American canon of holiday classics with A Christmas Story that solidifies him as one of our favorite directors. Quirky family dynamics, a leg lamp, a bunny suit, bullying, swear words and anorexia are all involved in one boy’s quest for a Red Ryder B.B. gun in the 1940s. With such sincerity and deep humor, make a switch from watching this on television this year and see it on the big screen with your Nitehawk family!
