The holiday classic, "A Christmas Story", and the famous Red Ryder BB gun was written and narrated by the late Jean Shepherd who had a home in Fort Lauderdale for some time in the '70's. The story was originally a chapter in one of his popular and hilarious novels recounting the semi-biographical childhood of a young working class family in the steel towns of northwestern Indiana. He later lived on Sanibel Island until his death in 1999.
The demented Santa Clause in "A Christmas Story" was p;ayed by Jeff Gillen, Norland HS, '60. Jeff died of a heart attack in NMB in '95.
I assume this inspired the annual The Christmas Story- Red Rider BB Gun.
