Behind the Oscar

Jose Ferrer, under a cloud after the House Un-American Activities Committee investigated his alleged communist leanings, was given little chance in the best actor category--yet, in a very exciting moment, he was announced the winner. Marlene Dietrich, appearing as an award presenter, almost stole the show at the ceremony. La Dietrich wore a dress that was apparently painted on, and displayed her fabulous legs and figure to gasp-evoking perfection.
