Behind The Oscar
This year marked the reluctant marriage between movies and television. The Academy had always turned down previous proposals from the TV networks to televise their proceedings, but this year the Academy got an offer it couldn't refuse: $100,000 persuaded them that they could live with the tube after all, especially since the major studios had been contributing less and less to the Academy's support. Without leaving their living rooms, the public was able to watch Gloria Swanson, Janet Gaynor, and Mary Pickford pass out awards.
