The two-time Oscar winner hosted the 36th ceremony in 1964 and the 57th awards in 1985; he co-hosted (with Hope, Niven, Rosalind Russell, James Stewart and Donald Duck!) the telecast in 1958 and the 44th awards (with Helen Hayes, Alan King and Sammy Davis Jr.) in 1972. He is pictured here in 1972 with Charlie Chaplin, who had returned after 20 years of self-imposed exile from the U.S. to accept a special award.
