At the 1974 Academy Awards, a Streak was Broken.
The Academy Awards have a dress code that is considered to be dressy. For the most part, people dressed in elegant gowns and suits are seen posing for photographs and accepting awards. When the year 1974 came around, the environment changed dramatically.
One performer elected to go barefoot on stage rather than follow the dress rule, and the audience loved it. In actuality, the comedy was the creation of none other than Allan Carr, the man who was responsible for the disastrous Snow White sketch earlier in the year.
