  • Trivia

    • As host David Niven was about to present Elizabeth Taylor, a naked man burst from behind the stage curtain and darted across the stage to the horror of those in the auditorium and those watching on television. The man was apprehended by security but rather than being arrested he was brought before the press. His name was Robert Opel, a San Francisco art gallery owner who had gotten backstage via a bogus press pass.
