A Christmas Story Paper props thread


I am resurrecting this one to try to create a nice present in time for Christmas.

Best of Christmas Story - You'll Shoot Your Eye Out.m4v - YouTube

I don't have a PC with a bluray drive, so I can't grab any stills. Has anyone tried to recreate the Red Ryder essay? I am trying to track down a red composition cover/folder and some caps of the essay and folder cover. If anyone has started this project already (Thrillhouse? :p) and wants to share, please let me know. I am not certain the entire paper is visible, but since my cursive writing closely resembles a 4th grader, I think I can nail this prop with some reference images.

If anyone knows of the logo/brand of indian head composition cover they use, let me know, too.

Appreciate the help!

Thanks on the telgram! I'm slowly working on my Christmas Story display that I bring out each year... including my pride and joy 1937 Zenith Radio

So the next question is - the magazine ad that is in the show - has anyone tried to re-create that or find an original?
