This Side of Paradise

In popular culture

In 30 Rock, the character Jack Donaghy played by Alec Baldwin says that he was awarded the "Amory Blaine Handsomeness Scholarship" by Princeton University.

This Side of Paradise appears in the film The Rum Diary, a 2011 film starring actor Johnny Depp and based upon the book of the same name by Hunter S. Thompson. The paperback copy can be seen on a nightstand alongside a copy of On the Road, a novel by Beat writer Jack Kerouac, in the scene where Depp's character Paul Kemp purchases drugs from another character named Moberg, played by actor Giovanni Ribisi.
