‘A Christmas Story’

Christmas films are all over the dial at this time of year, but this great 1983 comedy — based on the memoirs of Jean Shepherd — will be inescapable for the next couple of days. For the uninformed, it’s set in the 1940s, and young Ralphie is on a Christmas quest for a Red Ryder air rifle. (“You’ll shoot your eye out!”). 24-hour marathon starting at 8 p.m. on both TNT and TBS (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
