So sad. I saw the headline earlier today on Yahoo and at first thought it said 'A Christmas Story Son Killed In Car Crash,' meaning Peter Billingsley. I gasped aloud and clicked on it instantly, and while I was glad to see I was wrong, I was still saddened. That's one of my most favorite Christmas movies.
Oh man that's horrible. I hope the drunk driver gets life in prison for that.
Why is it the drunken idiots that kill all of these people always walk away with little or no injuries.
Oh man thats terrible. I wonder how the drunk driver feels after that happened.
I look at it like this. That driver will have to live with that the rest of his life and, to me, that's more punishment than any time in prison will fix.
Besdies A Christmas Story, Clark directed the classic teen sex comedy hit, Porky's
R.I.P. Bob Clark
Ralphie and his Red Ryder BB gun will forever be in our hearts.
God, that's so sad. Rest in piece. All the best to his friends and family.

One theory is, the state of inebiration makes the body so limp, it's less likely to absorb the full impact of a collision.
Another theory; the kind of hard-driving personality that prefers a big, heavy (and safer in crashes) vehicle, is statistically more likely to be prone to alcohol abuse. I do not know how well-documented either theory is.
But I don't imagine any explaination is much comfort to the friends and family of the victums.
Rest in peace, Bob and Ariel.
I hope they put him in next year's Oscar remembrance video...
For any horror movie fans out there, he also directed "Black Christmas." I haven't seen the remake (it's probably a piece of crap like so many remakes are), but the original is a classic.
^ Maybe this isn't the best time to bring that up.
You've left quite a legacy, Bob. When "A Christmas Story" is shown 24 hours a day on Christmas, you know you've made a defining mark in pop culture. It still remains one of my favorite Christmas movies, even though I've seen it countless times. RIP Bob.
WOW. Film buff that I am, I did not know that. God, you know, it's so unfair that he had to go that way.
Rest in peace. A Christmas Story has become a tradition and we watch it every Christmas morning.
I know I'm late on this, but how sad. Christmas Story lives forever.
RIP. I own the DVD - it's the only Christmas movie I can tolerate!
You know, we really shouldn't bring this up in the memorial thread. I don't want this to turn out like the Johnny Hart memorial thread
