80 Years Ago—Feb. 27, 1941: The Academy Awards are held in the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles; for the first time, sealed envelopes are used to keep the winners secret.
- Best movie of 1940—Rebecca
- Best actor—James Stewart in Philadelphia Story
- Best actress—Ginger Rogers in Kitty Foyle
- Best director—John Ford for The Grapes of Wrath.
It occurs to me that I’ve only seen one of these films, The Grapes of Wrath, even though I’ve heard of all four. I’ll have to check out the other three.
Philadelphia Story is one of my favorite movies ever! The cast, the dialogue, the acting!
I have seen all three – high quality movies – in the days when a boy took a girl out on a date.
