Can you guess which 1980s movie these TV stars are in?

From silver screen to Oscar gold.

In the 1980s, we watched a lot of classic TV stars take the leap to the big screen.

Carol Burnett moved beyond her variety show, Ted Knight cracked us up with different personalities, Peter Falk set us on the edge of our seat in an all new way, and so much more.

7 out of 10. I missed the one with Don Knotts because I seen the Orangutan and thought it was Every Which Way You Can. And I never seen the movie either, along with numbers 9 and 10.

I made the same mistake with Don Knotts, even tho I HAD seen CR2. As for #10...go out right now, find it, rent it, download it, whatever...but SEE IT!!! You will not be sorry.

9/10, missed the original Cannonball answer, which is funny because I saw that one, never saw the second one but got that answer right.

10/10! Interesting Footnote: "Seize The Day" was an adaption of a Saul Below story that Williams did for PBS in the mid-'80's, and in "Dead Poet's Society", Williams played a teacher who used that phrase to inspire his students!
