1
00:01:04,920 --> 00:01:09,391
The Sarah Siddons Award
is perhaps unknown to you.

2
00:01:09,480 --> 00:01:12,278
It has been spared the sensational publicity...

3
00:01:12,360 --> 00:01:15,636
...of such questionable honors
as the Pulitzer Prize...

4
00:01:15,720 --> 00:01:20,396
...and those awards presented annually
by that... film society.

5
00:01:20,480 --> 00:01:24,268
The distinguished-looking gentleman
is an extremely old actor.

6
00:01:24,360 --> 00:01:27,636
Being an actor,
he will go on speaking for some time.

7
00:01:27,720 --> 00:01:30,678
It is not important that you hear what he says.

8
00:01:30,760 --> 00:01:34,878
However, it is important that you know
where you are and why you are here.

9
00:01:34,960 --> 00:01:38,396
This is the dining hall
of the Sarah Siddons Society.

10
00:01:38,480 --> 00:01:43,759
It is the annual banquet and presentation
of the highest honor our theater has:

11
00:01:43,840 --> 00:01:47,310
the Sarah Siddons Award for
Distinguished Achievement.

12
00:01:47,400 --> 00:01:50,153
These hallowed walls,
indeed many of these faces...

13
00:01:50,240 --> 00:01:54,233
...have looked upon Modjeska,
Ada Rehan and Minnie Fiske.

14
00:01:54,320 --> 00:01:57,437
Mansfield's voice filled this room.

15
00:01:57,520 --> 00:02:01,195
It is unlikely that the windows
have been opened since his death.

16
00:02:01,440 --> 00:02:05,911
The minor awards, as you can see,
have already been presented.

17
00:02:06,000 --> 00:02:09,310
Minor awards are for such
as the writer and director...

18
00:02:09,400 --> 00:02:11,994
...since they merely construct a tower...

19
00:02:12,080 --> 00:02:15,834
...so that the world can applaud
a light which flashes on top of it.

20
00:02:15,920 --> 00:02:20,118
And no brighter light has ever
dazzled the eye than Eve Harrington.

21
00:02:20,200 --> 00:02:23,431
Eve... but more of Eve later.

22
00:02:23,520 --> 00:02:25,556
All about Eve, in fact.

23
00:02:25,640 --> 00:02:31,192
To those who do not read, attend the theater,
listen to unsponsored radio programmes...

24
00:02:31,280 --> 00:02:33,919
...or know anything of the world
in which you live...

25
00:02:34,000 --> 00:02:37,231
...it is perhaps necessary to introduce myself.

26
00:02:37,320 --> 00:02:39,390
My name is Addison DeWitt.

27
00:02:39,480 --> 00:02:44,952
My native habitat is the theater.
In it, I toil not. Neither do I spin.

28
00:02:45,040 --> 00:02:47,429
I am a critic and commentator.

29
00:02:47,520 --> 00:02:50,080
I am essential to the theater.

30
00:02:50,160 --> 00:02:52,151
This is Karen Richards.

31
00:02:52,240 --> 00:02:56,552
She is the wife of a playwright,
therefore of the theater by marriage.

32
00:02:56,640 --> 00:03:02,795
Nothing in her background should have
brought her closer to the stage than Row E.

33
00:03:02,880 --> 00:03:07,715
However, during her senior year at Radcliffe,
