Special Oscars film clips.

From "Duck Soup" and inimitable. video
And Orsen Welles as Father Mapple in John Huston's "Moby Dick."
Finally, Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon and Joe E. Brown in Billy Wilder's "Some Like it Hot."
None of these flicks won Oscars. But nobody's perfect.

"Some Like It Hot" won an Academy Award for costume design. But of course the Oscars don't really matter in terms of artistic appreciation. It's simply the world's most over-hyped industry trade show. Even worse than all those advertising shows.

I did mean major Academy Awards, anonymous. But I agree with you.

Marilyn is always marvelous to look at. Lemon is chewing up the scenery here, but it's okay. I can't take my eyes off quirky, jerky little Joe E. Brown in this picture. And it's not just his schtick, but that he is so... of another time. He's a treasure.
