“National Lampoon’s Animal House” is a raunchy, beer-drenched fable of misfits rebelling against staunch conformity and authority.
Dean Wormer (from film): “You clowns have been on double-SECRET probation since the beginning of the semester…”
While the original Delta House has been long-demolished, many sites remain, including the Cottage Grove streets where the infamous parade scene was filmed.
Organizers are holding another parade, in an attempt to reclaim a Guinness Book of World Records recognition for most people in white togas.
John Belushi (from film): “Toga! Toga!”
Travis Palmer of Cottage Grove’s Chamber of Commerce was born the year the movie came out. But he and many locals identify with it to this day.
“There’s a character in the movie for everybody," says Palmer. "And I think that’s why it’s such an identifiable film and such a memorable film for people, is they all know a Bluto, they all know a D-Day, or an Otter.
"Everybody has something they can identify with.”
