The Oscar Reviews
"The Oscar" is one of the greatest, memorably bad movies.
A story of the narcissistic, scenery-chewing, Stephen Boyd and his rough climb to Hollywood stardom. Not an understated performance by any means. His anger goes to 11, and rarely falls below 8.
The direction is stagy, the screenplay contains some of the weirdest metaphors, AND it features the bad-acting debut of Tony Bennett. Even the great Ernest Borgnine can't elevate this train wreck, yet I can't give it less than two-and-a-half stars, because it's so damn fascinating. I'm sure to watch it again.
One of the best examples of how Hollywood forgot how to make movies in the mid-'60's.
