Chevy Chase played the eternally cheerful, slightly crazed dad, Clark Griswold, but National Lampoon was not where he started. Chase began his acting career in a short, Walk…Don’t Walk, which aired in 1968. He went on to star in National Lampoon’s Vacation series beginning in 1983, and followed with a string of comedy hits including Fletch and Three Amigos. Most recently, Chase appeared on NBC’s Community.
