The Griswold Family Gets Back Together

The Griswold Family Gets Back Together, The stars of National Lampoon's "Vacation" in 1983 team up for a silly photo shoot. 'Vacation' cast reunites, they recall laughter with more laughter, Back in 1983, National Lampoon magazine launched its "Vacation" film franchise. The film's screenwriter was the man who would become eminent '80s teenage angst writer-director John Hughes, who initially wrote "Vacation" for the magazine -- not the big screen.

Chevy Chase, now 68 years old, starred as the quintessential air-headed middle class dad. As Clark Griswold, he fantasized about a certain sports car-driving super model (Christie Brinkley) when he wasn't falling asleep at the wheel or imparting cryptic wisdom on his son. The rest of the Griswold nuclear clan was comprised of Beverly D'Angelo (Ellen), Dana Barron (Audrey) and Anthony Michael Hall (Rusty).

"I just remembered laughing and having a great, great experience the whole summer," Hall, now 44, told ABC's Good Morning America -- who interviewed the group as they were at Entertainment Weekly for its annual reunions magazine issue. Hall was just 14 years old when "Vacation" was made.
