Directed by
Bob Clark

The delightful comic account, set in the 1940s, of a young boy's schemes to make sure he gets a certain toy gun for Christmas. Based on the short stories of Midwestern humourist Jean Shepherd, it also tells of the boy's narrow escapes from neighbourhood bullies, his father's battles with a smoke-belching furnace and infatuation with an old lamp, his mother's attempts to feed the baby and a nightmarish visit to a department store Santa.
