1970s / Charlie Chaplin Receives Honorary Oscar 1972
At the 1972 Academy Awards, 83-year-old Charlie Chaplin received a long overdue honorary Oscar for his immense contributions to cinema. The presenter was Daniel Taradash, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It was the first time Chaplin had set foot in the United States since 1952. (Chaplin had never obtained American citizenship and, after a vacation abroad, he was refused admission into the U.S. during the Red Scare era because his political views were thought to be pro-communist. Idiocy!)
