50 Years Ago: Academy Award for Best Picture

The Academy Awards are being handed out in about three hours from now.

In 1958 Leslie Caron starred as Gigi, causing Maurice Chevalier to remark, "zank evven for leetle gurhls."

Gotta love the poster:

And if you're ignorant about Leslie Caron, you need to watch this clip, of her dancing in An American in Paris. That thing with the book...that made me fall in love with her!

Chevalier was right: Zank evven!
