Tomorrow night the Biography channel will have a two hour documentary on my favorite movie comedy. It of course was filmed at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Below is the press release issued on the documentary.... has it really been 30 years?
Wednesday, August 13 9:00pm Animal House: The Inside Story on the Biography cable channel:.
Toga! Toga! Toga! This special marks the 30th anniversary of Animal House, the legendary movie that celebrated youthful rebellion, college fraternities gone amok, and food fights. We'll interview the movie's creators and stars, including Harold Ramis, John Landis, Peter Riegert, Karen Allen, and Kevin Bacon. We'll delve into the world of fraternities past and present to uncover the inspiration for the film's outrageous frat-house antics, and to see how it inspired the toga party fad. We'll also travel to Dartmouth College with co-writer Chris Miller to revisit the scenes of his own college debauchery, and go to the University of Oregon, the producers' location of last resort after they were turned down by other colleges
