Don't expect this reading to be exactly like the well known movie of the same title. The characters are the same but its doesn't all happen at Christmas time. The episode with the famous leg-shaped lamp is recounted in hilarious detail. However, the boy's obsession with a Red Ryder frontier rifle is not resolved as it was in the movie. The hillybilly neighbors, the Bumbass family appear as well, although in a darker more threatening form. I liked Dick Cavett's reading and there was an appropriate use of music.
