When I saw this story last night I almost posted it, but decided to wait. The reason was so I could really do it justice with some clips and other things that show a slice of Robert Clark's career. I also knew I would go off on the drunk driver and thought I might say something I would regret later. I just don't understand why people don't take cabs or get someone else to drive them. The two deaths to Clark and his son, and the injury to the drunk driver's passenger all could have been avoided if he had done the smart thing. Always encourage your friends to call you if they need a ride, no matter the time of night. OK, enough time on the soapbox.
As you may remember from Christmas, I'm a little tired of A Christmas Story and think it is overplayed. BUT, that doesn't mean I don't like the movie. I do like it and think it's a classic.
I enjoyed the Porky's movies to some extent, but I was just a little too young, and they were a little too dark. I actually loved Turk 182! and because of that can excuse his participation in Rhinestone.
Here are a few scenes from A Christmas Story and an interview with a man who bought the house and now sells leg lamps.
