Red Ryder B. B. gun. I think that's the name of the movie.
I don't watch many.
I just watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vaca the other day 😃
One of my other favs is Office Christmas Party
A Charlie Brown Christmas is a masterpiece Christmas film and has the best music of any Christmas film. Watched it every year along with Dr. Seuss's Grinch Who Stole Christmas and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. All 3 films are excellent but Charlie Brown Christmas has that classic soundtrack so I give it the edge. I still have the soundtrack CD and it's brilliant. Opening scene:
"In casting the characters, the producers took an unconventional route, hiring child actors. The program's soundtrack was similarly unorthodox, featuring a jazz score by pianist Vince Guaraldi. Its lack of a laugh track (a staple in US television animation in this period), in addition to its tone, pacing, music, and animation, led both the producers and the network to predict the project would be a disaster. However, contrary to their collective apprehension, A Charlie Brown Christmas received high ratings and acclaim from critics. It has been honored with an Emmy and a Peabody Award, and has become an annual presentation in the United States, airing on broadcast television during the Christmas season. Its success paved the way for a series of Peanuts television specials and films. Its jazz soundtrack achieved commercial success, selling four million copies in the US. Live theatrical versions of A Charlie Brown Christmas have been staged."
