The Oscars get it wrong almost every year, and the 37th Academy Awards, handed out on 4.5.65, were no exception, particularly in three categories. My Fair Lady (which I can’t even bring myself to watch on Bluray) got more votes than the masterful Becket and Dr. Strangelove for Best Picture, and George Cukor beat Peter Glenville and Stanley Kubrick for Best Director…c’mon! Rex Harrison beat out Strangelove‘s Peter Sellers, Becket‘s Peter O’Toole and Richard Burton and Zorba The Greek‘s Anthony Quinn — who in the world of 2014 gives a damn about Harrison’s Henry Higgins? I understand the Harrison win only because of O’Toole and Burton being up against each other — a suicide move that ensured a split Becket vote.
