Ralphie Parker: a boy who just wants a Red Ryder air rifle.This is a true holiday classic, and we all come together to watch it every Christmas. 9-year old Ralphie tells everybody around town about the gift he wants more than anything. However, his parents, and even a Santa Claus, tell him that it’s just too dangerous-he’ll shoot his eye out. However, Ralphie never gives up on his hopes of owning the gun. And on Christmas morning, he is shocked to find that his usually-strict father has bought for the gun for him! What could possibly go wrong. It turns out that Ralphie shoots the gun which somehow knocks his glasses off, and he is worried he has actually shot his eye out! He fumbles around for his glasses, and ends up stepping on them and breaking them. Although the Red Ryder rifle did cause a little chaos, Ralphie confirms that it was the best Christmas present he could have received.
The comedy film was released in 1983, and was based off of the book, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash. The author of the book, Jean Shepherd, wrote stories and anecdotes that made up the film. Directed Bob Clark, the film became a huge success, earning him two Genie Awards.
