The holiday classic, "A Christmas Story", was written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark and was based on Shepherd's 1966 book, "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash". The book is a compilation of short stories based on Shepherd's experiences growing up in Hammond, Indiana. A number of the short stories appeared in Playboy magazine and originated from his unscripted radio broadcasts in the 1950's, 60's and 70's.

Shepherd narrated the entire movie and also had a cameo in the Department Store scene. The movie was set in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana which was a disguise for Shepherd's hometown: Hammond. Hohman is one of Hammond's busiest downtown streets.
