Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Mrs. Parker mentions to the Old Man that "the Bears are playing Green Bay on Sunday". In 1939 and 1940 (the years it is generally agreed that the events occurred) the Bears and Packers did not play in December (the Packers played at Chicago on 11/5/1939 and 11/3/1940), and the NFL season was over by the second week of December. However in 1941 the Packers played a playoff game at Chicago on 12/14.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): At the beginning of the movie when we see Christmas activities in the large town square, there's a red-and-cream "Peter Witt"-type trolley car, as well as an elevated view of a two-car trolley. There are no trolley tracks, nor are there overhead wires to power the trolley.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the parents first come downstairs Christmas morning you can see a roaring fire in the background. Unless they stayed up all night there should not be a fire going.
  • In early December of 2008, there was a contest to see who can portray the best Ralphie, whether if it's him in a pink bunny suit, or in his winter apparel in celebration of the movie's 25th anniversary. Plus they revealed the house in Cleveland where the movie was filmed.
