* CareerResurrection: For Music/ElmerBernstein, whose career was mostly spent scoring TV shows in the 1970's (a far cry from ''Film/TheTenCommandments'' and ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'').

** Subverted, however, with John Vernon's character Vernon Wormer, the dean of the college. According to John Landis, his first choice for the role was [[Franchise/{{Dragnet}} Jack Webb]], who turned it down because he felt that the film was making fun of his straight-laced, law-and-order image.
