The Old Man unpacks his highly anticipated "major award" in this clip from the very first film adaptation of writer/narrator Jean Shepherd's short stories, "The Phantom of the Open Hearth", first telecast in late 1976 on PBS-TV. Jean Shepherd is best remembered for the first big-screen adaptation of his short stories in the cult 1983 film "A Christmas Story", which he also narrated. Both films include slightly different interpretations of the "leg lamp" short story which first appeared in Shepherd's 1966 novel "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash".
