Students who went to a Chapman University lecture hall Thursday afternoon to hear a Holocaust survivor speak were quickly set straight. "Survivors survive car accidents and fires," Leopold Page told his audience. "We survived a cataclysm of human history. We are witnesses to the truth."

In 1981, the talk was high on "Reds" and "On Golden Pond." But the Oscar went to "Chariots of Fire." These are the kinds of tales that keep Academy Awards shows quirky and surprising. They are what keeps anyone, with any sense of history, from saying that any anticipated award is a "sure thing."
