W. C. Fields in color! Interesting to note that Luise Rainer is still with us, at age 102.
The 10th Academy Awards was a unique event for the Disney Studios: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs received a nomination for best score, and The Old Mill won for best animated short. It was March 10th, 1938 at the Biltmore Hotel (a week late due to flooding), and Art Babbitt was there with his young wife Marge, a 16mm camera and a roll of COLOR film.
With Frank Capra, W. C. Fields, Louis B. Mayer, Luise Rainer, Louella Parsons, Mack Sennett, Leo McCarey, Cecil B. Demille, photographer Hymie Fink, Jack Warner, and Louise (Mrs. Spencer) Tracy.
