1985 • 11th edition

From 7th to 15th Sep­tem­ber 1985.
The star of all stars was here at last! Eliz­a­beth Tay­lor, to whom the Fes­ti­val paid an excep­tion­al trib­ute, arrived for four days in Deauville, with… 270 kilo­grams of lug­gage! Trib­utes were also paid to Deb­bie Reynolds, Robert Wise, Alan Jay Lern­er and Jerome Kern, as well as the Amer­i­can Film Insti­tute (AFI), the first Amer­i­can insti­tu­tion in the his­to­ry of the Fes­ti­val to be hon­oured by a trib­ute. Robert Zemeck­is’s Back to the Future and Ron Howard’s Cocoon fea­tured on the year’s playbill.
