"A Christmas Story" brings some early holiday joy to the Joslyn

Oct 25, 2017

Film Historian Bruce Crawford will present “A Christmas Story” at the Joslyn Art Museum on Friday, November 10th at 7:00 p.m.

The holiday classic is being screened as a fundraiser for the Nebraska Kidney Association.  Crawford says the film has become many people’s number one holiday film. 

He says the film is especially appealing because of its American flavor.  Just as he’s done for nearly 25 years, Crawford will offer a little something extra with this movie screening.

"Two of the best known characters in the film – without a doubt – are “Flick,” that’s actor Scott Schwartz.  “Flick” who was triple dog dared into freeing his tongue on a flag pole.  And equally well-known is the red-headed, yellow-eyed, coon-skin cap wearing bully named “Scut Farcus” and that’s actor Zack Ward.”

Crawford says the two actors will appear onstage together before the movie starts, swapping stories and answering audience questions.

Tickets for “A Christmas Story” are available at all Omaha HyVee stores at the customer service counter.
