The Academy Awards have become something more than a mere symbol of annual, cinematic triumph. To an actor or actress, the award can mean the validation of a career. To a film, it is entrance to the pantheon of immortality. The Oscars no longer simply acknowledge history -- they make it. This series tracks the evolution of the award and the effect it has had on the motion picture industry. In this episode, "A Time of Change," viewers witness the decline of the studio system in the '60s and the rise of a new sensibility that brought such films as The Hustler and Elmer Gantry.
