Description

Unseen for decades, 1980 is Ken Finkleman and Rick Moranis’ enormously funny CBC pilot that was way ahead of its time. A send up of a current-affairs show, 1980 pokes fun at subjects ranging from the current state of the Canadian film industry, academics, the student radicals of the 60s to Hollywood depictions of the Holocaust. Steven Kampmann stars along with Finkleman and Moranis. Also featuring Toronto salesman Phil Givner, Andrew Gilles, Caroline Yeager and the late comedy producer, Joe Bodolai. 1980 shown courtesy of CBC.

Part of The Harvey Atkin Tribute to Canadian Media Series.
