Hal Roach Gets A Special Oscar, 1984
Jackie Cooper and George "Spanky" McFarland present an Honorary Award to Hal Roach, in recognition of his unparalleled record of distinguished contributions to the motion picture art form, at the 56th Academy Awards. Hosted by Johnny Carson.
This is something that I saw when it was originally run on television. If I remember correctly, film clips from a few Hal Roach films were originally shown during this segment.
