Description


Rare unofficial miniature Academy Award statuette produced by Columbia Pictures to honor the studio's 15th anniversary and its success at the 1935 Oscars. The mini award measures 5.75″ tall and is set upon a 2.5″ diameter base, with engraved plaques on the front and back: "Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences First Award, Columbia Pictures, for the Best Picture of the Year" and "15th Anniversary, Columbia Pictures, 1920-1935." In fine condition, with tarnishing to the statuette. At the 1935 Academy Awards, Columbia's film It Happened One Night took home five Oscars—Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Clark Gable), Best Actress in a Leading Role (Claudette Colbert), Best Director (Frank Capra), and Best Writing (Robert Riskin). A great piece of Hollywood history.
