This is one of the best Oscar photos, but there are so many more than no one ever sees. There should be aretrospective book published, with Cher’s wild and revealing feathers, as well as Barbra Streisand’s black net, the Streaker, Jack Palance’s push-ups, Roberto Benigni’s jumping across seat backs, and some of Billy Crystal’s parodies.
