MOVIE “A Christmas Story”
/ 8:00pm (TBS) 10:00pm (TBS) TNT presents its traditional (and still welcome) 24-hour Christmas Eve marathon of this yuletide favorite from 1983, starring Peter Billingsley as Ralphie, the little boy who yearns to find a Red Ryder BB gun under the Christmas tree. Not just a Christmas story, it’s about parents, little brothers, bullies, decoder rings, double dog dares and most of all, the workings of a youthful mind. The writing by Jean Shepherd (who also narrates) captures it all perfectly. Darren McGavin and Melinda Dillon also star.
George Clooney stars in “Hail, Caesar!” on HBO.
