Synopsis

In National Lampoon's first film, a parody of 1962 college life, it's campus hijinks galore as the rowdiest fraternity at Faber College battle rival fraternities and administrators, chase women, and throw toga parties.

Description

The film that launched National Lampoon as a comedy powerhouse. Developed by the editors at Harvard's Lampoon, the film is a collection of true-life experiences and memories with a great deal of embellishment. Nothing is sacred in this film where every gesture, phrase and song became de rigeur in fraternity houses nationwide after its release. Decadence, debauchery and general delinquency prevail at Delta House, the scourge of the fraternity system at Faber College in 1962. In an effort to rid himself of the troublesome lot, the Dean hatches a plan in cahoots with the brown-nosing Greg Marmalarde of Omega try to have the Deltas kicked off campus. Unfortunately for all, the determination and drive of the Deltas is more than anyone counted on.

Notes

Budget estimate $3 million. Color by Technicolor. Released theatrically in the USA July 1978. "Animal House," which was shot in only 35 days on location in Oregon, was allegedly based on the college experiences of National Lampoon writer Chris Miller. This was comedian/actor John Belushi's first starring role in a feature film. He was already well-known as one of the "Not Ready for Prime-Time Players" on TV's "Saturday Night Live." The film helped launch the careers of director Landis, screenwriter Harold Ramis, and producer Ivan Reitman, as well as its cast of relative newcomers, including Belushi, Tim Matheson, Tom Hulce, Karen Allen, Kevin Bacon, and Peter Riegert. ABC aired a short-lived television series in the spring of 1979 based on "Animal House," entitled "Delta House." The series was produced by the team responsible for the movie. Reprising their film roles were John Vernon, Stephen Furst, Bruce McGill, and James Widdoes, with the other parts recast. A new female character, "The Bombshell," was played by then-unknown Michelle Pfeiffer. Also looking to capitalize on "Animal House"-mania, NBC and CBS each produced their own "Animal House" rip-offs, "Brothers and Sisters" and "Co-Ed Fever." Rated BBFC AA by the British Board of Film Classification.
