Abstract:

Tyler and Jordie Schwartz grew up loving the movie A Christmas Story. Although they didn't know each other as kids, the couple always shared the same annual anticipation of waiting for the movie to air on television. Once they finally met, they were delighted to discover their mutual admiration for the classic Christmas movie. Some time later, they discovered that entrepreneur Brian Jones had purchased Ralphie's house in Cleveland, and was restoring it to its movie grandeur. Knowing that much of the movie was also filmed near where they live in Canada, they hatched a plan to visit all the locations used in the movie to see what they look like today. But first they had to find out the locations of the locations! During an adventure spanning two years and two countries, they uncovered forgotten facts, discovered little-known locations and recovered long-lost memorabilia. Join the filmmakers as they visit more than 15 locations in Canada and Cleveland to learn amazing trivia about the movie and the people who made it. Also included are rare documents and interviews from crew members in Cleveland and Toronto who worked on the film back in 1983. For instance, you won't believe how they got their hands on the actual blackboard and classroom door from Miss Shields' classroom at Ralphie's school ... they just happened to inquire about the abandoned school the day before it was to be gutted. They were invited to come the next day and take whatever they wanted! It meant they had to dumpster dive in order to save some precious movie memorabilia. You won't believe your eyes when you witness the demolition crew tearing apart Ralphie's school with little regard for its place in film history! Or when they finally get a tip that leads to the forgotten location of the Chop Suey Palace! Join the adventure as the filmmakers: -Visit Ralphie's school 25 years later -Rescue Miss Shields' chalkboard from the dumpster -Re-create the famous flagpole scene in the same school yard -Track down the antique fire truck that saved Flick -Tour the Toronto film studio where the movie was made -Discover Ralphie's screen-used Red Rider air rifle at a small-town museum -Recover the actual movie costumes found buried in a Toronto warehouse -Ride one of the vintage red trolleys seen in the movie -Stand first-in-line on opening day of A Christmas Story house -Check out Cleveland's historic Higbees and Public Square -Solve the mystery of where Chop Suey Palace was located -Discover the bridge where Ralphie says the F-dash-dash-dash word -Step backstage of A Christmas Story: The Play.
