USA Flag in Revenge of the Nerds - 1984

In 1984 the world of academia was rebooted in favor of the technologically skilled. And greatest of all "N" word movies hit Hollywood.  Revenge of the Nerds 1984 is the classic original "N" word movie.  The flag of the USA appears in this film several times.  Its most centered scene takes place when we see it hanging in the makeshift gymnasium-dorm above the robot and next to the epic underdog heroes of the film Lewis & Gilbert, played by  Robert Carraoine and Anthony Edwards respectively seen in the photo above

The US flag also appears during the Greek Council room.  It can be seen hanging on the port side of the Greek Hall.

The US flag also appears as an arm patch on some of the college competitors before the beginning of the Beer-Tricycle Race.  It can be best seen on the blue and red dressed members of the race.

All through the 1980s techie movies were unleashed into the public sphere before the main launch of the internet in the 1990s.  Other such techno-computer oriented movies included Real Genius, Weird Science, and War Games.
