Though he was a relative new comer and lacked the status typically associated with Best Picture presenters, the then-two-time nominee took on the assignment in 1972 when many better-known celebrities balked at the job, worried that they would be tainted if 'Stanley Kubrick's 's A Clockwork Orange (1971) won the top gong and they were seen by the public as linked to the controversial picture.
