Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh present the Oscar to Bugs Bunny

The Academy just posted (as a tribute to Tony Curtis) a clip from the 1959 Oscar telcast with Curtis (and wife Janet Leigh) presenting the Best Cartoon Short award to producer John Burton for the Bugs Bunny short, Knighty Knight Bugs. Click here to see the video. And I believe that’s James Algar accepting for Walt Disney (for live action short, Grand Canyon).
