12 Drug-Fueled Stories From Behind The Scenes Of Caddyshack

 

The sports comedy Caddyshack is a cult classic appreciated by comedy nerds and golfing dads alike. Released in 1980, the crude, vulgarity-laced film launched Harold Ramis’s directorial career and pulled Bill Murray into the spotlight.

Caddyshack behind the scenes also had plenty of dark drama and tragedy, though. As a first-time director, Ramis allowed (or overlooked) rampant cocaine use, which often had the studio execs tearing their hair out and led to a production that was as improvised as it was scripted. There was the requisite tension between Chevy Chase and everyone else with whom he was working. And the crew notoriously even set off a huge explosion on a real-life golf course without getting the owners’ permission… all while diverting them with food and booze.

The Caddyshack cast had a killer time shooting this movie and thanks to a room full of drugs (it was the ’80s, after all), they left the rest of us with some wild stories, and a solid film to boot.
