10 Things You Didn't Know About "A Christmas Story"

Among them the fact that Porkys led directly to this movie being made.

Clark said in an interview that he was constantly asking the studios he worked for if they would be interested in doing a Christmas comedy based on the funny childhood stories that Shepherd wrote for Playboy and later published in his book 'In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash.' Everyone turned him down until his raunchy high school comedy 'Porky's' became a massive and unexpected success. Clark said 'Porky's' gave him a free pass to pick his own projects and 'A Christmas Story' was next on his to-do list.

Also the house in the movie is located in Cleveland and is now a museum. Here's a photo I took last year when I happened to be in town.

Why Gary Gygax Didn't Celebrate Christmas

Here's is a note he wrote to a gaming magazine in 1969. He was a devout Jehovah's Witness and very much into historical research. Ironically his D&D gaming system would later be accused on being satanic by some fundamentalists.
