Saturday Newsreel: The 1966 Academy Awards

This is actually a backstage interview with Lana Turner, Kathryn Grayson and James Garner. Aren't they glamorous? I love the ladies' big '60s hairdos and fancy jewelry. At the end, there's brief silent portion with other winners from the night, including Julie Christie in that amazing gold dress she wore to accept her statue for Darling (1965). Also making an appearance: Shelley Winters, Lee Marvin, Martin Balsam--and I think George Sanders? Am I missing anyone?


  1. That's Bob Hope! ha ha ha. He must be standing on a box to make him appear taller than everyone else!!

  2. Also, it's nice to see Kathryn Grayson with an Oscar, even though she didn't win it. She looks so good holding it!!!

  3. I missed Hope. I'll have to look again. I know, funny about Grayson and the Oscar; I did a double take when the clip started playing!
