Trivia

When Debby Boone performed Best Original Song nominee "You Light Up My Life", she was accompanied by a chorus of little girls who were announced to have come from The John Tracy Clinic for the Deaf who interpreted the lyrics in sign language. It was later reported that the girls were really students rounded up at Torrence Elementary School in Torrence, California, and that they were actually signing gibberish. The girls who had been asked to perform from the clinic were unavailable due to some legal wrangles. See more »

50 Years of movie stardom
10 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was the Golden year of cinema. A tribute to all who contributed to the entertainment industry. It was also the first and last time that a tribute was made to the young juvenile actors who previously won an award. Peggy Ann Garner and Margaret O'Brien were part of a "Big Parade" of previous oscar winners.
