Do you remember the scene where Ralphie and Randy were waiting in line to see Santa Claus? Well, the weird kid in line that started to talk to Ralphie wasn't an actor. He was just an extra on set and director Bob Clark thought he was really weird, so he put the kid in the movie. The actors who played Santa, his elves, and the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz were also local extras. Watch the scene here. Movie buffs will also enjoy these facts about The Wizard of Oz, too.

Speaking of waiting in line to see Santa, screenwriter and creator Jean Shepard made a brief cameo appearance in A Christmas Story. He plays the man at the department store who tells Ralphie and Randy that the line to see Santa begins at this spot, but it ends all the way down the line. Jean Shepherd is also the voice of the Narrator. Besides watching movies, add these 15 old-fashioned Christmas traditions to your holiday itinerary.

Ralphie daydreams throughout A Christmas Story, but did you know that there was a daydream sequence that was cut out of the film? He dreams about helping Flash Gordon battle Ming the Merciless using his trusty Red Ryder BB Gun. Unfortunately, there is no footage of this scene available, but you can read part of the script here. While Ralphie Parker dreamed of Flash Gordon, so did a young George Lucas. There's no interpretation for his dreams, but there are hidden meanings behind these common dreams.
