MOVIE “A Christ­mas Story”

The Washington Times Daily - - TELEVISION -

/ 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.
