It's the final days before Christmas in early 1940s Cleveland, and 9-year-old Ralphie wants one thing from Santa Clause more than anything else: a Red Ryder Carbine Action Air Rifle. As he trudges through the snow to school, faces the neighborhood bully and visits a malevolent department store Santa Clause, Ralphie connives, conspires and campaigns for the most fabulous Christmas present ever in this heartwarming, hysterical and sweetly nostalgic holiday film.

    Trash. The kid moaning and wailing throughout is nauseating to say the least. 💀💀💀

    I have so many happy memories watching this movie as a kid, with my family. It’s still a joy to watch all this time later. So funny and quirky.
  • Maybe a good time

    My girlfriend raves about this movie and how it doesn’t come on television the way it used to when she was in her childhood and up until her late 20’s

    I never understood why people liked this movie. I find it boring
  • Don’t be tricked, you probably already purchased this.

    Another classic I’ve purchased many times and bought digitally last year being resold with a new SKU to trick folks into buying it again.

  • How to Access 4K Upgrade if You Previously Purchased HD

    By Edward Lynn
    If you previously purchased HD from iTunes, you probably CAN access the 4K upgrade by going to the AppleTV store front and then playing the movie from there. If you try instead to play from your purchases, it will only play in HD. However, as I indicated above, I am able to access the 4K version by going to the iTunes store front on my Apple TV and searching for and playing the movie from there. I discovered this by calling Apple support. Apparently, Apple has a glitch in its systems right now that is causing only the HD version to show in purchases. I hope this helps someone.
