In 1973, the big Oscar winner was “The Sting,” which won 7 out of its 10 awards, including Picture, Director for George Roy Hill, the Writing Award for David S. Ward, and other Oscars.

“The Sting” competed for the top award with a diverse group of films: George Lucas' “American Graffiti,” Ingmar Bergman's Swedish-language drama. “Cries and Whispers,” William Friedkin's special-effects horror saga, “The Exorcist,” and the British romantic comedy, “A “Touch of Class,” for which Glenda Jackson received her Second Best Actress in three years.
