1
00:01:07,106 --> 00:01:11,773
The Sarah Siddons Award
is perhaps unknown to you.

2
00:01:11,857 --> 00:01:14,776
It has been spared the sensational publicity

3
00:01:14,860 --> 00:01:18,280
of such questionable honours
as the Pulitzer Prize

4
00:01:18,363 --> 00:01:23,243
and those awards presented annually
by that... film society.

5
00:01:23,326 --> 00:01:27,289
The distinguished-Iooking gentleman
is an extremely old actor.

6
00:01:27,372 --> 00:01:30,788
Being an actor,
he will go on speakingfor some time.

7
00:01:30,872 --> 00:01:33,958
It is not important thatyou hear what he says.

8
00:01:34,041 --> 00:01:38,337
However, it is important thatyou know
where you are and why you are here.

9
00:01:38,421 --> 00:01:42,002
This is the dining hall
of the Sarah Siddons Society.

10
00:01:42,085 --> 00:01:47,591
It is the annual banquet and presentation
of the highest honour our theatre has:

11
00:01:47,674 --> 00:01:51,299
the Sarah Siddons Awardfor
Distinguished Achievement.

12
00:01:51,382 --> 00:01:54,260
These hallowed walls,
indeed many of these faces,

13
00:01:54,343 --> 00:01:58,514
have looked upon Modjeska,
Ada Rehan and Minnie Fiske.

14
00:01:58,598 --> 00:02:01,851
Mansfield's voice filled this room.

15
00:02:01,934 --> 00:02:05,772
It is unlikely that the windows
have been opened since his death.

16
00:02:06,022 --> 00:02:10,689
The minor awards, as you can see,
have already been presented.

17
00:02:10,773 --> 00:02:14,234
Minor awards are for such
as the writer and director,

18
00:02:14,318 --> 00:02:17,029
since they merely construct a tower

19
00:02:17,112 --> 00:02:21,033
so that the world can applaud
a light which flashes on top of it.

20
00:02:21,116 --> 00:02:25,496
And no brighter light has ever
dazzled the eye than Eve Harrington.

21
00:02:25,579 --> 00:02:28,957
Eve... but more of Eve later.

22
00:02:29,041 --> 00:02:31,164
All about Eve, in fact.

23
00:02:31,247 --> 00:02:37,045
To those who do not read, attend the theatre,
listen to unsponsored radio programmes

24
00:02:37,128 --> 00:02:39,881
or know anything of the world
in which you live,

25
00:02:39,964 --> 00:02:43,343
it is perhaps necessary to introduce myself.

26
00:02:43,426 --> 00:02:45,595
My name is Addison DeWitt.

27
00:02:45,678 --> 00:02:51,388
My native habitat is the theatre.
In it, I toil not. Neither do I spin.

28
00:02:51,472 --> 00:02:53,974
I am a critic and commentator.

29
00:02:54,058 --> 00:02:56,727
I am essential to the theatre.

30
00:02:56,811 --> 00:02:58,896
This is Karen Richards.

31
00:02:58,979 --> 00:03:03,484
She is the wife of a playwright,
therefore of the theatre by marriage.

32
00:03:03,567 --> 00:03:09,987
Nothing in her background should have
brought her closer to the stage than Row E.

33
00:03:10,070 --> 00:03:15,117
However, during her senior year at Radcliffe,
Lloyd Richards lectured on the drama.

34
00:03:15,200 --> 00:03:19,329
The following year
Karen became Mrs Lloyd Richards.

35
00:03:19,412 --> 00:03:23,125
There are, in general,
two types of theatrical producers.

36
00:03:23,208 --> 00:03:27,712
One has a great many wealthy friends
who will risk a tax-deductible loss.

37
00:03:27,796 --> 00:03:30,253
This type is interested in art.
