ANIMAL HOUSE is 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, in which 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, Dean Wormer (John Vernon) hatches a plan in cahoots with the brown-nosing Greg Marmalard (James Daughton) of rival fraternity Omega to have the Deltas kicked off campus. Unfortunately for all, the determination and drive of the Deltas is more than anyone counted on. In their last stand against the uptight dean, the antiheroes of Delta drink, smoke, romp, frolic, and dance their fraternity out with a bang. This outrageous, much-loved comedy classic features the first major film role of the late, great John Belushi as John "Bluto" Blutarsky, the hard-partying, beer-guzzling champion of Delta house.
