LET'S TALK HOLLYWOOD AND MOVIES
THE VERY BEST "BEST MOVIES" LIST
The finest films of the last 30 years, as selected by three eminent authorities:

1. The National Film Registry
2. The Film Critics of the New York Times
3. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences


Who is OSCAR, Anyway?
We have all seen the ebullent Academy Award winners cluthching their gold-plated Oscars as they deliver breathless acceptance speeches. But who is OSCAR? The still figure of a man holding a sword and standing atop a reel of film was designed by famed production designer Cedric Gibbons (his credits include A Night at the Opera and An American in Paris). For many years after the 1927 inception of the awards ceremony, the statue was nameless.

Then, as Hollywood legend goes, a secretary working at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences noticed that the statue's face bore a resemblance to her uncle Oscar, and hence the 13 1/2-inc-tall figure was christened.
