1
00:01:05,000 --> 00:01:09,500
The Sarah Siddons Award
is perhaps unknown to you.

2
00:01:09,600 --> 00:01:12,400
It has been spared the sensational publicity

3
00:01:12,400 --> 00:01:15,700
of such questionable honours
as the Pulitzer Prize

4
00:01:15,800 --> 00:01:20,500
and those awards presented annually
by that... film society.

5
00:01:20,600 --> 00:01:24,400
The distinguished-Iooking gentleman
is an extremely old actor.

6
00:01:24,400 --> 00:01:27,700
Being an actor,
he will go on speakingfor some time.

7
00:01:27,800 --> 00:01:30,800
It is not important thatyou hear what he says.

8
00:01:30,800 --> 00:01:35,000
However, it is important thatyou know
where you are and why you are here.

9
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:38,500
This is the dining hall
of the Sarah Siddons Society.

10
00:01:38,600 --> 00:01:43,800
It is the annual banquet and presentation
of the highest honour our theatre has:

11
00:01:43,900 --> 00:01:47,400
the Sarah Siddons Awardfor
Distinguished Achievement.

12
00:01:47,500 --> 00:01:50,200
These hallowed walls,
indeed many of these faces,

13
00:01:50,300 --> 00:01:54,300
have looked upon Modjeska,
Ada Rehan and Minnie Fiske.

14
00:01:54,400 --> 00:01:57,500
Mansfield's voice filled this room.

15
00:01:57,600 --> 00:02:01,300
It is unlikely that the windows
have been opened since his death.

16
00:02:01,500 --> 00:02:06,000
The minor awards, as you can see,
have already been presented.

17
00:02:06,100 --> 00:02:09,400
Minor awards are for such
as the writer and director,

18
00:02:09,500 --> 00:02:12,100
since they merely construct a tower

19
00:02:12,200 --> 00:02:15,900
so that the world can applaud
a light which flashes on top of it.

20
00:02:16,000 --> 00:02:20,200
And no brighter light has ever
dazzled the eye than Eve Harrington.

21
00:02:20,300 --> 00:02:23,500
Eve... but more of Eve later.

22
00:02:23,600 --> 00:02:25,600
All about Eve, in fact.

23
00:02:25,700 --> 00:02:31,300
To those who do not read, attend the theatre,
listen to unsponsored radio programmes

24
00:02:31,400 --> 00:02:34,000
or know anything of the world
in which you live,

25
00:02:34,100 --> 00:02:37,300
it is perhaps necessary to introduce myself.

26
00:02:37,400 --> 00:02:39,500
My name is Addison DeWitt.

27
00:02:39,600 --> 00:02:45,000
My native habitat is the theatre.
In it, I toil not. Neither do I spin.

28
00:02:45,100 --> 00:02:47,500
I am a critic and commentator.

29
00:02:47,600 --> 00:02:50,200
I am essential to the theatre.

30
00:02:50,200 --> 00:02:52,200
This is Karen Richards.

31
00:02:52,300 --> 00:02:56,600
She is the wife of a playwright,
therefore of the theatre by marriage.

32
00:02:56,700 --> 00:03:02,900
Nothing in her background should have
brought her closer to the stage than Row E.

33
00:03:03,000 --> 00:03:07,800
However, during her senior year at Radcliffe,
Lloyd Richards lectured on the drama.

34
00:03:07,900 --> 00:03:11,800
The following year
Karen became Mrs Lloyd Richards.

35
00:03:11,900 --> 00:03:15,500
There are, in general,
two types of theatrical producers.

36
00:03:15,600 --> 00:03:19,900
One has a great many wealthy friends
who will risk a tax-deductible loss.

37
00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:22,300
This type is interested in art.
