Animal House

Universal City: Universal Pictures, 1977. Revised Final Draft script for the 1978 film.

National Lampoon was a huge success as an alternative magazine in the early 1970s, and irrevocably altered its future in 1978 with the production of this film, an irreverent, sharp, and now classic comedy. A production company was launched, producing over half a dozen films between 1978-2002, and as a result today's generation associates "National Lampoon" almost completely with its films rather than its pulp origins. And importantly, this was the film that catapulted Harold Ramis and John Belushi from television into the movies, where they would both flourish. Nominated by the Writer's Guild of America for Best Comedy Screenplay in 1979.
