I saw "Water for Elephants" on Saturday. Not a great movie but lots of mentions of Cornell - the hero went to the CU Vet School.

Nothing filmed in Ithaca, however. The one scene that showed any of Cornell was a brief flash of Morrill Hall that was CGA'ed in.

Also lots of smarmy mentions of the Ivy League and ivy leaguers. Interesting because the movie was set in 1931 and the term Ivy League wasn't even coined until 1933-1935. Hollywood? Historical accuracy? Yeah right.

At least they knew Cornell was an Ivy League school.

Re-purposing the thread, off the top of my head, movies that Cornell is mentioned in:

+ Love Story (duh)
+ Citizen Kane (one of the schools Kane was thrown out of)
+ Dirty Dancing (the asshole with the Ayn Rand book went to Cornell)
+ that terrible movie where Charlie Sheen winds up on a South American radio telescope (the astronomer wears a CU t-shirt, but it's not red)

I'm sure there are dozens of others.

The book was okay. Water for Elephants kind of ambled along and you weren't in a hurry to finish in one sitting; I think one of my wife's book club books that I actually read. A lot of the other book club books fall into the category of women-leading-screwed-up-lives-and-writing-about-it. Men's books are much more realistic: Cop becomes millionaire writing gaming software, decides to remain a police detective, owns a Porsche (in Minneapolis - good location for four-season driving), has gorgeous surgeon / girlfriend / wife, solves every crime, wife/GF almost gets killed every other book. At least we got a definitive Lucas Davenport's 100 Best Songs of the Rock Era out of Broken Prey [www.johnsandford.org]

There is Realism, and then there is Wish Fulfillment.

Beeeej: trust you to spoil the thread. Jerk.

Adding from your list, which is boring and incomplete, but I'm not drawing further parallels:

+ Altered States (apparently, though I swear he was from NYU, and later he's in Boston)
+ Dark City (which I haven't seen, no, it's not *that* Dark City)
+ The Lost Weekend (drunks seems to be connected with our Alma Mater)
+ Prince of Tides *and* Say Anything *and* The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (seriously? ew.)

Also:

+ the sort-of-true-story comedy about the ADM exec who was a Cornell alum

Interesting local news quickie on the early Ithaca film industry. Pearl White sounds like a hoot (later she would be the perpetually imperiled Pauline). "Lionel Barrymore, great uncle of Drew Barrymore" ... cringeworthy. Gotta keep it current For The Kids.

The new management is SRI International. SRI = Stanford Research Institute. Though it's been separate from Stanford University since 1970, the ties are probably still strong. They borrowed heavily from Cornell's faculty at their founding (7 of the original 15 faculty members were from Cornell, plus their first president, David Starr Jordan, was a CU alumnus) and word was that a 2nd raid of the CU Physics dept was perpetrated a few decades later. They beat Cornell 56-6 in their centennial football game in 1991.

And now they're nabbing our awesome telescope?

Goddammit.

Goddammit.

They also kicked our butt in the first round of the NCAA BBall tourney a couple of years ago. They also recently won their 100th NCAA title while we are still looking to end a long drought. Yes, 100. If Cornell were in the PAC-10 then I am sure that we would despise them even more. Stanford = Harvard of the West. On the other hand, they have a pretty lousy hockey team.

But getting back to your original point, the ties between SRI and Stanford are not all that strong. However, you may wish to despise SRI as the company that gave the world carpal tunnel syndrome having invented the computer mouse and a Windows-like operating system combined with being one of the first nodes on what is now the internet.

They beat Cornell 56-6 in their centennial football game in 1991.
What I remember: Late in the game, Cornell drove on the Stanford 3d string to get 1st and goal from in close. Dennis Green sent in the starters to preserve the shutout to no avail. They did stop the two point conversion, though.

You are misinterpreting Roy - who was saying "I like to watch volleyball, so there" - and who was in turn misinterpreting phillysportsfan who was defining "non spectator sports" as ones where Roy wasn't sitting in mostly empty bleachers.

I'd argue that NSFNET is what really turned into the internet. I doubt ARPANET would have ever gone public/commercial left to its own devices, so by that reasoning Cornell has as much to do with global carpal tunnel syndrome (and porn) as SRI.

I haven't watched it yet, but I'm told last night's "Designated Survivor" (where Keifer Sutherland's character, the man thrust suddenly into the presidency, is a Cornell alum) had several Cornell and Ithaca references. Looking forward to the TiVo tonight.

I think it's ok to post this if Beeeej already watched it on Tivo...

The last episode showed the President (Jack Bauer...I mean Keifer Sutherland) bringing in a person "I knew at Cornell." They talked about the Pinesburger challenge (never heard of it, but apparently refers to a restaurant off campus) and "flying in the burgers from Ithaca" and "spending time together in Clark Hall."

Network TV hasn't been this Cornellish since "The Office" (a much better show.)

Oh, so "Designated Survivor" didn't make that up? I was sure they were just embellishing. Thanks.

ETA: On the other hand, that means the dialogue was a bit anachronistic. Unless the President's friend has returned to the Pines in the last few years, he would have no reason to know about the Challenge, and the scene was clearly more about invoking nostalgia.

So basically the writer sticking in Cornell references is younger than Sutherland and trying to stick in some shoutouts. :P

During a cabinet debate, he should point at one cabinet member and say "Good cabinet members", then point at another and say "Bad cabinet member", and so forth.

It's a few years old but we're going through "The Good Wife" on Amazon, and just saw an episode where one of the characters attends an "Ivy Core" mixer, which is apparently for the five Ivy League law schools. Except the banner in the back lists Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Princeton and Dartmouth. :-( They got the number right, but I suppose the people responsible for the props just wrote down the first five Ivies they could think of?

"Tokyo Joe" 1947 Humphrey Bogart is a veteran going back to see if his bar business still exists and gets involved in intrigue. His partner Ito (Teru Shimada) kept it intact. Ito is a Cornell grad, mentioned several times in the movie. It has been many years but there is a small chance the Cornell grad is Bogart's Japanese nemesis in the film, not his partner. Good movie of it's own right. 3 Stars

Under Cover of Night (1937). Establishing shot of "Trent University" is the bell tower shot from between the pillars of Goldwin Smith.
