Origin: The Oxford English Dictionary cites a 1913 reference to the verb "gorp", meaning "to eat greedily". The occasionally theorised good old raisins and peanuts is probably a backronym.
Gorp is a 1980 comedy film starring Michael Lembeck and Dennis Quaid, and featuring early acting work of Rosanna Arquette and Fran Drescher in supporting roles. Directed by Joseph Ruben, with both story and screenplay by Jeffrey Konvitz and A. Martin Zweiback, the film follows in the tradition of the 1978 fraternity comedy National Lampoon's Animal House, and the 1979 summer camp comedy film Meatballs. Gorp was the last film released by American International Pictures. Set in a Jewish summer camp, Gorp features the kind of physical, sexual, and scatological comedy prevalent in films of this genre, while playing for comedic effect on the class distinctions between the camp's management, the camp counselors, the waiters, and the kitchen staff.
