There have been several movies made as a result of the National Lampoon magazine, but the first film came in 1978. National Lampoon's Animal House was directed by John Landis, who was still trying to make a name for himself in Hollywood in the late ‘70s. While John Belushi was the star of the film, other actors including Tim Matheson, Thomas Hulce, and Stephen Furst made up the members of a fictional fraternity at Faber College.
