Eye Bet was a Canadian television game show hosted by Jim Perry, which debuted on CTV in 1971. His announcer, as with most Jim Perry game shows in Canada, was smooth voiced CFTO-TV weatherman Dave Devall. The object of Eye Bet was for contestants to view old Hollywood movie clips, then answer questions about each clip, testing their skills of observation.
According to TV North, a book about the history of Canadian television by Peter Kenter, production of Eye Bet was cancelled after one season when the costs of licensing the movie clips became prohibitive. Its U.S. counterpart, The Reel Game was also discontinued after a short run on ABC.
