National Lampoon’s Animal House on VHS. Starring John Belushi, Karen Allen, Tim Matheson, John Vernon, Verna Bloom, Tom Hulce, Stephen Furst. Directed by John Landis. 1978.
From the VHS box:
One of the most popular movie comedies of all time is also the film that made food fights an art form and John Belushi a star. This raunchy, screwball comedy directed with madcap zest by John Landis offers a relentless spoof of 1960’s college life by following the hilarious adventures of the Delta fraternity. There’s nothing this motley collection of students won’t do to get the best of Dean Wormer who secretly conspires to revoke Delta’s charter. In addition to Belushi as the guitar bashing, beer can smashing, garbage eating Bluto Blutarsky, the outstanding cast includes head skirt-chaser Tim Matheson, innocent freshman Thomas Hulce and Stephen “Flounder” Furst, and Otis Day and the Knights with their show-stopping performance of “Shout.”
Toga! Toga! Toga!
