Behind the Oscar

Again, there was a scarcity of stars on hand. Many pictures were being made on location. This was the 1st telecast in color, and the only star of any note appeared to be Lynda Bird Johnson, escorted by George Hamilton. The evening was not without drama, as a film bearing a message from Patricia Neal was shown. Miss Neal was recovering from a severe stroke which almost took her life, and her appearance was a moving one. A slight attempt at creating a feud between the 2 female British contenders--Julie Christie and Julie Andrews--failed completely.
