A couple of weeks ago we were talking about “On the Waterfront” and “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Craig brought up how Elia Kazan was demonized by many in Hollywood after he gave Senator McCarthy’s committee the names of eight alleged communists. Here is the video of Kazan receiving the honorary Oscar in 1999. Some people stand and some do not but the funniest image is of Ed Harris and his wife.
