: MMMM: I got to thinking after I posted yesterday, that maybe the chronology is a little off. He received the '89 Oscar for MLF, which means it would have been awarded in March, '90. So at the March '91 Oscars when he presented would have been just before he went into filming for LOTM, which is why his hair was so much longer. Am I wrong or am I right, one who knows all re DDL?

Hi, NightSky...well, dates are not my thing. I like words better than numbers...but that sounds about right to me. What I mosly remember is that long, black frock coat & those long legs, as he walked up to the podium, couple with the tears in his eyes and the way he had to keep swallowing before he could speak. And I keep thinking that he wore a similar (if not the same) outfit the following year, or am I crazy in that regard? Yeah, I know...I'm crazy in MOST regards!
Believe it or not, as much as I love my Hawkeye, and as great an actor as I think DDL is, I don't follow his private life very closely. I know there are people out there who know where he is living at any given moment (or think they do) but I'm not one of them. Hope that doesn't make me any less of a fan, though, as I definitely think he's the best actor of our time.
You know, I don't even know if he's working on anything new, or if he's still happily cobbling shoes in Florence...anyone else know? I'd like to think he's gonna make another film again someday!
