Animal House Movie Lives On
The Register-Guard (Eugene, OR) | ‘Animal House’ revisited | The 1978 comedy lives on with an inside look during a two-hour documentary tonight | By Mark Baker
…Produced for less than $3 million, “Animal House” turned out to be one of the most profitable movies ever made, bringing in $141.6 million at the box office. The U.S. Library of Congress even deemed it a “culturally significant” film in 2001, selecting it for preservation in the National Film Registry. It also made Bravo’s list of the “100 Funniest Movies” ever made, and was No. 36 on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 best American comedies.
Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located on the Pacific coast, with Washington to the north, California to the south, Nevada on the southeast and Idaho to the east. The Columbia and Snake rivers delineate much of Oregon’s northern and eastern boundaries, respectively. The area was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before the arrival of traders, explorers, and settlers who formed an autonomous government in Oregon Country in 1843. The Oregon Territory was created in 1848, and Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859.
