Caddyshack is one of the best movies of all time. There, I said it. Every time I see it (TNT, USA, TBS seem to play it twice a day), I’m reminded that Harold Ramis is a genius. It’s classsic comedy whether you play golf, watch golf, despise golf or couldn’t care one way or the other.
So, I was surprised to learn that this summer marks the 30th anniversary of the film’s release. Yes, 30 years. And I realized, that over those 3 decades, Caddyshack has continued to remain relevant. People of all walks still quote it. Myriad fan pages scatter the web with trivia, pics, clips, memorabilia, etc, et al. Notions such as cinderella story, doodie doodie, the world needs ditch diggers too, night putting and a dancing ultra lo-fi gopher make the Caddyshack faithful nostalgic for those simpler times.
To celebrate Caddyshack’s big number 30, I decided to pay homage with a tribute photoshoot. Bring back all the characters. Recreate the iconic scenes. I was lucky enough to find a willing country club and an amazing cast. NYC phenom producer Inna Khavinson brought it all together. And on the longest day of the year, we shot like crazy and captured images I feel do the film justice.
I hope Harold would agree.
Below are a couple behind-the-scenes pics. The full series, along with Caddyshack trading card (collect ‘em all) are up on my site
