The Academy Awards, 1965

The 37th Academy Awards were emceed by the indefatigable Bob Hope on April 5th, 1965, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium; that year, Mary Poppins, My Fair Lady, and Zorba the Greek took the lion's share of awards. Here are a few highlights, including some famous faces my truckbuddies will remember fondly:

Curiously, Dick Van Dyke, who gave an unforgettable performance in Mary Poppins, was not nominated for any awards. But just so my truckbuddy Tim from England won't be disappointed, here is Dick singing his smash hit, which I'm sure Tim told me is his all-time favorite too - isn't that right, Tim?

Bonus: Jimmy Durante and Martha Raye present the awards for documentary films, and these two old pros are a hoot:

Like Dick Van Dyke I'm speechless!

I adored Martha Ray.
