    Description

    1935 Mini Oscar for Columbia Pictures 15th anniversary. Oscar used as a table decoration during the dinner honoring Columbia Pictures' 1935 15th Anniversary. "Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences First Award Columbia Pictures For the Best Picture of the Year" emblazoned on plaque at base of statue, "15th Anniversary Columbia Pictures 1920-1935" on plaque at rear base. A fabulous souvenir of Hollywood's Golden Age! Celebrating 15 years of Columbia Pictures achievements and the company's 1934 Academy Award "Big Five" sweep for It Happened One Night (the film won Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Screenplay), the anniversary party was a big event. The first picture ever to sweep all five awards, It Happened One Night put American men into undershirts and gave Columbia some respectability. Previously a B-movie studio with successful westerns and serials, It Happened One Night helped move Columbia into the big time and, with Frank Capra's other films, helped to keep the studio going through the Depression. Measures approx. 5 ½ in. tall, and the base has a diameter of 2 ½ in. Statue exhibits an aged patina on the head and shoulders.
