The 36th Academy Awards happened on this day in 1964 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium (a rather small venue, frankly), hosted by Jack Lemmon. (There was an envelope mix-up at this Oscars, too!) The red carpet wasn’t photographed in those days the way it is now — for better or worse — but the pictures from this night are great and we’ve got some very intense Wiki Deep Dives ahead. Let’s look!
