When a “Christmas Story” Kid Met Richard Pryor

Child Stars, Journalism, Richard Pryor, Scott Schwartz

For this interview I did for Yahoo!, I figured Scott Schwartz would talk about his two signature films, A Christmas Story and The Toy, as well as his current work with the child-actor advocacy group, A Minor Consideration. I did not figure on Schwartz talking so much, and with such affection, about Richard Pryor: “I joked with Richard for years, and he joked back: I was the white son he never had.”
