Last night's viewing: a 1982 PBS adaptation of Jean Shepherd stories, "The Great American Fourth Of July and Other Disasters." Not available on home video ever.
This picks up the Old Man, Ralphie, Randy, Flick and Schwartz some years later. Well worth a look if you love "A Christmas Story." With, of all people, a young Matt Dillon as Ralphie, and Matthew Broderick's real life dad James Broderick as the Old Man. This got me into Jean Shepherd many years back.
