A Christmas Story [Music from the Motion Picture]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Much has been made of the iconic nature of writer/director
arrator Jean Sheppard's impossibly nostalgic film A Christmas Story. Since its relatively meager 1983 release, it has gone on to join (or perhaps surpass) the ranks of Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life as America's most beloved holiday movie (the TNT network devotes an entire 24-hour period to the film every Christmas), so it comes as no surprise that Rhino's 2009 release (in November, no less) of the film's soundtrack should herald more than a few spontaneous carols, preferably sung in the back kitchen of your local Chinese restaurant on Christmas ...
