Glad Tidings! The 25th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition of the Ultimate Christmas Movie.

The Christmas spirit isn't served up with more heartfelt warmth or observant hilarity than in this beloved adaptation of Jean Shepherd's holiday story. In 1940s Indiana, nine-year-old Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) dreams of his ideal Christmas gift: a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. But when gruff dad (Darren McGavin) and doting mom (Melinda Dillon) regularly respond with "You'll shoot your eye out!" Ralphie mounts a full-scale, Santa-begging campaign. He encounters a slew of calamities from snowsuit paralysis to the dreaded tongue-on-a-frozen-flagpole gambit. We triple-dog-dare you to unwrap a more welcome Yuletide classic!

Two-Disc Special Edition In Collectible Packaging

Both Full-Screen and Widescreen Versions of the Movie Plus Stars/Director Commentary, Magical Making-of, Jean Shepherd Audio Readings, Red Ryder Rifle and Leg Lamp Featurettes.
