In the film, Clark Griswold is the dad who can’t quite get Christmas right: As played by Chevy Chase, Clark struggles with affixing lights to his house, gets himself stuck in the attic and seriously overestimates his Christmas bonus.

In an interview with The Dispatch, Columbus native Beverly D’Angelo, who plays sensible, practical, elegant Ellen Griswold, discussed the film’s enduring legacy.

The original “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” released in 1983, was intended as a comedy with a hard edge. “The first ‘Vacation’ was R-rated and it was a satire — not quite a ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit, but certainly an extension of something like that,” D’Angelo said. “But . . . they discovered immediately that people were taking their families because they identified with the Griswolds.”

Consequently, subsequent films in the series were designed to be more family-friendly, including “Christmas Vacation.” “When ‘Christmas Vacation’ came out, it was again: Who are we and how do we do Christmas?” D’Angelo said. “There was a lot to relate to.”
