Caddyshack 40th Anniversary: Actors take us back to the shack

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the film Caddyshack, which was released in July 1980 to underwhelming reviews by the film critics. Nevertheless, the film gained cult status over the years scoring with fans worldwide because of its slapstick comedy, unforgettable characters and endlessly quotable dialogue.

Nowadays, the screwball comedy is considered a classic. I spoke with two actors that had a front row seat to all the hijinks going on and off camera. Scott Colomby and Peter Berkrot played the D’Annunzio brothers in the film that caddied at the fictional Bushwood C.C.

Before Caddyshack, Colomby worked steadily with guest starring roles on episodic television like One Day at a Time, a recurring role on NBC’s daytime drama, Days of Our Lives, as well as feature films and television movies. For Berkrot, Caddyshack would be his first film.
