Billy Crystal's entrance was planned to have him bungee-jump from the rafters, but safety concerns quickly killed that idea. Instead, Crystal made his entrance on a dolly, wearing Hannibal Lecter's mask from The Silence of the Lambs (1991). It would turn out to be one of his best remembered entrances. See more »

I'm glad this year that "Silence of the Lambs" won the Oscar for Best Picture. But I wonder what it would've been like if "Beauty and the Beast" had won. I am so glad that Anthony Hopkins won the Oscar for Best Actor, he deserved it big time like Kathy Bates deserved hers a year before. I think the musical performances during the show were pretty good. The musical segment of Beauty and the Beast, Be Our Guest, and Belle were each good with their own clever way. This year may not have been the best, but it was still worth the winners. I'm glad that Jodie Foster won Best Actress and Alan Menkin won for his musical score of "Beauty and the Beast".
