Aroview: This gem is little known in this neck of the woods, yet is roundly celebrated in America as a modern Yuletide classic.
Set in 1940s Indiana (delightfully recreated), nine-year-old Ralphie dreams of his ideal Christmas gift - a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. But when his request is met with disapproval by his grumpy dad and doting mum, he mounts a full-scale Santa-begging campaign! Thereafter the calamitous hi-jinks snowball to hilarious effect.
Narrated by co-screenwriter Jean Shepherd, on whose novel the story is based.
