Closeup view of the coveted award given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on March 21, 1952. This Oscar, a program of the 24th annual Academy Awards presentations, a news camera and a waste basket bulging with burned-out flashbulbs--that was the scene in a dressing room of the Pantages Theater after all the Oscars had been handed out, all the pictures snapped, and all the stars had gone home, some clutching their golden award, others hoping to win one some year soon.
