Rona Jaffe's "Mazes and Monsters" featuring Tom Hanks

Anyone else remember this? I believe it was a made-for-tv movie in 1981 or '82, and one of the supporting characters was TOM HANKS! This was either before the "Bossom Buddies" sitcom he starred in, or during, and he played a college student who played the game - and went crazy.

I was at a hospital recently and came across the paperback of Rona Jaffe's "Mazes & Monsters," and although I had seen the film, I had never read the novel, so I paid my nickel for it. Pretty good, but it now reignited my desire to see this likely cheezy film again.

The star of the film was Chris Makepeace - the kid in "Meatballs" with Bill Murray ("Rudy the Rabbitt, Rudy the Rabbitt") who runs the race.
