It was one of the Academy Awards most famous moments in their long TV history, when Robert Opel somehow slipped through security and streaked the stage completely nude, behind a bemused David Niven. After all, it was the year the streaking fad was at it’s peak, so it was almost expected. And in later years, there was enough evidence many people thought that this actually was a publicity stunt designed to get the Oscars back in the spotlight in a big way again! Take a look at the actual incident, and then listen to my morning after interview below, with the streaker himself, Robert Opel, who I tracked down in the Los Angeles phone directory.
