The Oscars

The 38th Academy Awards held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on Monday, April 18, 1966, honoring movies released in 1965. This was the first year that the Academy Awards was broadcast in color. To heighten the impact of the broadcast, art directors Alexander Golitzen and William Morris designed an unusually spectacular set, which included 42 fountains spraying water. Lynda Bird Johnson, daughter of President Johnson, attended the Academy Awards presentation and was escorted by actor George Hamilton.
