Many Hollywood actors keep their fans at arm’s length. Not Ian Petrella, who played little brother Randy Parker in the classic movie “A Christmas Story.” Petrella, 36, has been living in A Christmas Story House in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood since June, and plans to stay through the holidays, shaking hands, sharing stories and admiring the leg lamp in the front window.

He and other actors from the movie will be special guests at the “A Christmas Story”Convention held at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel and A Christmas Story House and Museum Friday through Sunday, Nov. 28.
“Helping to keep this movie alive is why I came back,” Petrella said.
