“A Christmas Story” House: Cleveland, OH

"A Christmas Story" House“Only one thing in the world could’ve dragged me away from the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window.”  If you look closely at the middle of the large porch window in the above photo, you can see what Ralphie was talking about in “A Christmas Story.”  Even those who have not seen the 1983 film about a boy’s quest for a BB gun for Christmas have probably seen pictures of the long, shapely, high-heeled, fishnet-clad leg topped with a fringed lampshade.  This house, located on Cleveland’s East Side, was the setting for the movie; now restored, tours are offered and there is a museum across the street that features props and costumes from the movie, among other memorabilia.  Visited July 2011.

Location:  3159 W. 11th St.
