A story Russ Garcia would like everyone to forget...

But being Charlie Chaplin fans, a good one to read, if you haven't... "The Case of the Misplaced Oscar" for the music of Limelight. More at Jazz Wax> There are more links about the story on their site.

In short, Russ Garcia worked on the music for Limelight, but somehow never got an Oscar the night they were given in the spring of 1973. See Jazz Wax site for more.

Great story. If he had a strong advocate in the Academy, I think there would be a strong case to make for an Oscar.
