Tyler Schwartz, the owner of RetroFestive.ca, has written a book about the making of the movie, A Christmas Story.
In 1983, a modest movie called "A Christmas Story" was filmed in Toronto and St. Catharines, Canada. Thirty years later, it is widely considered to be the best Christmas film of all time! This is the story of its unlikely journey.
