CLEVELAND | The line to see the house where much of "A Christmas Story" was filmed didn't stretch all the way back to Terre Haute, but it did extend down a block of clapboard working-class homes that stood in on the silver screen for the bygone Hammond where Jean Shepherd grew up.
HAMMOND | “Let’s do this!” exclaimed Rich AmRhein, of Valparaiso, as he helped pull down the curtains covering a new window scene for “A Christmas Story” Comes Home exhibit at the Indiana Welcome Center on Thursday.
Actor James Broderick plays Mr. Parker and David Elliott (right) is Ralphie in the 1976 PBS movie 'The Phantom of the Open Hearth,' based on Shepherd's story of his father's prized Leg Lamp.

Child actor Clarke Hallum, who's cast as the wide-eyed coveted lead role of Ralphie in the new stage production "A Christmas Story, The Musical!," said some of the best performance advice he's received to prepare is to "relax and remember to just be a kid."
