The Mad Moment:
It was a great idea: hire Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin to open the 1986 Oscars with a song from
Guys and Dolls
. Trouble is, they declined, leaving the organisers with a last-minute scramble to find replacements.
Their choices: Telly Savalas, Dom DeLuise and Pat Morita. Yes, Kojak, Captain Chaos and Mr Miyagi, together at last.
How It Should Have Happened:
In character. Who wouldn't want to see a cop, a superhero and a karate sensei singing?
