This delightfully funny holiday gem tells the story of Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsly) a 1940's nine-year-old who pulls out all the stops to obtain the ultimate Christmas present.
The kids take center stage for this 20th Anniversary edition DVD. For the commentary track, Peter Billingsley and director Bob Clark chummily reminisce on the making of the film, which seems to have been as delightful as the film itself. Because it was such a small film, Clark relates how they were left alone to do whatever they wanted, as long as fuddy-duddy author Jean Shepherd wasn't on the set. The new documentary features Billingsley and the three other former child actors' recollections about the shoot. The kids even help out with two trivia tests, but why is there nary a peep about or from co-stars Melinda Dillon and Darren McGavin? Two 30-minute radio segments of Shepherd's reading his original stories is a nice touch for this double DVD set, as is a featurette about the real Red Ryder guns. Best yet, the film has never looked better, finally available in widescreen (along with pan and scan). --Doug Thomas

Truly a classic - lots of potty talk, so we didn't introduce until our children were 10+, but it's still fun to watch and laugh together about the cheese anecdotes.Published 8 days ago by Tallred

It took a few years, but i'm here to finally answer your Q :)
They won't ship something until they've received payment. That's odd seeing as your order just disappeared. You might've accidentally requested a cancellation or the page just glitched? Once they ship your order out, you'll receive an... Read More

|Differences between this and the 2006 Blu-Ray?||
Why would you expect better from the studios? They try and double, triple, and sometimes quadruple dip on any and all movies they can. Look at how many times Terminator 2(Lionsgate, I know) has been released/repackaged.
