716 Film Buff of the Year
First viewed : 23 July 1985
I can only remember watching this once and I can pin it down to the same evening as the OMD concert which makes sense.
Film Buff of the Year was a cross between Mastermind and Screen Test chaired by the dry-as-a-bone Robin Ray. There were specialist rounds but they were assigned in advance not chosen ; my personal nightmare would have been Jerry Lewis. The episode I watched had a guy answering questions about Clint Eastwood. I remember one of the questions was name a film in which Clint Eastwood dies . The Beguiled must have been one but I'm a bit stumped for the others. High Plains Drifter would be a tricky one to call.
The series ran from 1982 to 1986.
