This is the BEST Academy Show I have seen so FAR!
13 May 2007 | by missgangsmashersSee all my reviews

I was watching the 27th Annual Academy Awards Last Week and it was a hoot!

Bob Hope was the Master of Ceremonies and he had "jokes" for life. Watching the Old Classic Hollywood Stars was grand!

There speeches were short and sweet and when the Sponsors were telling them to make it quick in between awards, they were even sweeter...

Can you imagine... Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Marlon Brando, Walt Disney, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Bing Crosby, Jayne Wyman, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Frank Sinatra, oh darn I can't think of the others right now...Last but not least...drum roll please...Dorothy Dandridge all in one place at one time! It was awesome!

Oh and Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne were in the audience too! They didn't present/win an award like the others but Bob Hope has the "hots" for Marilyn and he was making fun of John Wayne too.

Bob Hope had some of the best jokes and he was always nice to the ladies. Some of the people who won the Oscar wouldn't even say a Speech! They just accepted their award and walked off! After they would walk off; Bob would say; "Oh he/she said "thank you" (LOL) It was fun, fun, fun!

I believe this was the first televised as well!

Best, Miss. T
