"Christmas Vacation" (1989)

"National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" (1989) is a holiday favorite and fits in any Dartmouth Film Society season film series.

Of course, National Lampoon put Harvard on the party map, and few people know of the influence (albeit sketchy) of the Dartmouth Review. I wrote for a liberal alternative student journal in my undergraduate days ("Uncommon Threads"). Dartmouth does have "Animal House" to its credit, allegedly loosely based on Dartmouth's AD or Bones Gate fraternity.

Anyways, National Lampoon, Inc. is a film and television company spin-off of the National Lampoon humor magazine begun at Harvard University, the country's oldest Ivy League college, as the Harvard Lampoon.

Lampoon alums include Conan O'Brien.
