Thread: National lampoon vacation....

  1. #1

    Default National lampoon vacation....

    Hope everyone is feeling fine... sitting in quarantine in MN today, digging through some of my old stuff and found national lampoons vacation VHS. Popped it in my old VCR and watched it again. Funny old movie- though I can't decide who I think is more attractive christy Brinkley or Beverly deangelo. But whatever....

    Question though: the computer Clark uses to plan the family trip in the grizwald family truckster at the beginning of the movie..... what is it? Just curious. Thanks! And everyone stay well!!!!

    The prop computer is an Apple II. (I say "prop" because it's definitely not actually generating the screen display.) I *think* the video game console sitting next to the computer that the kids are playing with when he walks in and then turn back on for the car vs. Pac Man vs. laser spider bit is a Bally Astrocade; initially wanted to say Fairchild Channel F but I'm going with the Astrocade after looking at the scene again. (They both had weird vertically-oriented controllers and wood-grained consoles.)

    Yes, definitely Apple II and Bally Astrocade. (They upgraded to a Mac Plus in Christmas Vacation)

    And for sure Beverly D'Angelo.
