John Landis on Good Day Rochester talking about Animal House, Coming To America, Michael Jackson's Thriller and more.

Hollywood director John Landis, perhaps best known for the 1978 comedy classic "Animal House," is in Rochester to celebrate the film's 40th anniversary this weekend.

He'll be at the George Eastman Museum for a screening and discussion of the film tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at the Dryden Theatre.

But first, he joined us on Good Day Rochester to talk about the film's impact, as well as some of his other work, including Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video and the popular 1988 comedy "Coming to America" starring Eddie Murphy.
