Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews Animal House producers Ivan Reitman and Matty Simmons, and screenwriter Chris Miller. Conversation focuses on the experience of filming on location at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. Simmons also explains the progression of National Lampoon from comedic magazine to television show to film, including a live show at the Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin.

Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)

These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
