00:01:03,960 --> 00:01:08,360
The Sarah Siddons Award
is perhaps unknown to you.

3
00:01:08,440 --> 00:01:11,240
It has been spared the sensational publicity

4
00:01:11,320 --> 00:01:14,600
of such questionable honours
as the Pulitzer Prize

5
00:01:14,680 --> 00:01:19,400
and those awards presented annually
by that... film society.

6
00:01:19,480 --> 00:01:23,320
The distinguished-looking gentleman
is an extremely old actor.

7
00:01:23,320 --> 00:01:26,680
Being an actor,
he will go on speaking for some time.

8
00:01:26,680 --> 00:01:29,640
It is not important that you hear what he says.

9
00:01:29,760 --> 00:01:33,880
However, it is important that you know
where you are and why you are here.

10
00:01:33,960 --> 00:01:37,400
This is the dining hall
of the Sarah Siddons Society.

11
00:01:37,520 --> 00:01:42,800
It is the annual banquet and presentation
of the highest honour our theatre has:

12
00:01:42,880 --> 00:01:46,320
the Sarah Siddons Award for
Distinguished Achievement.

13
00:01:46,440 --> 00:01:49,120
These hallowed walls,
indeed many of these faces,

14
00:01:49,200 --> 00:01:53,240
have looked upon Modjeska,
Ada Rehan and Minnie Fiske.

15
00:01:53,320 --> 00:01:56,400
Mansfield's voice filled this room.

16
00:01:56,520 --> 00:02:00,240
It is unlikely that the windows
have been opened since his death.

17
00:02:00,440 --> 00:02:04,960
The minor awards, as you can see,
have already been presented.

18
00:02:05,040 --> 00:02:08,320
Minor awards are for such
as the writer and director,

19
00:02:08,400 --> 00:02:11,000
since they merely construct a tower

20
00:02:11,080 --> 00:02:14,840
so that the world can applaud
a light which flashes on top of it.

21
00:02:14,920 --> 00:02:19,120
And no brighter light has ever
dazzled the eye than Eve Harrington.

22
00:02:19,240 --> 00:02:22,400
Eve... but more of Eve later.

23
00:02:22,480 --> 00:02:24,600
All about Eve, in fact.

24
00:02:24,600 --> 00:02:30,160
To those who do not read, attend the theatre,
listen to unsponsored radio programmes

25
00:02:30,280 --> 00:02:32,960
or know anything of the world
in which you live,

26
00:02:33,040 --> 00:02:36,200
it is perhaps necessary to introduce myself.

27
00:02:36,320 --> 00:02:38,400
My name is Addison DeWitt.

28
00:02:38,520 --> 00:02:43,960
My native habitat is the theatre.
In it, I toil not. Neither do I spin.

29
00:02:44,080 --> 00:02:46,480
I am a critic and commentator.

30
00:02:46,480 --> 00:02:49,080
I am essential to the theatre.

31
00:02:49,160 --> 00:02:51,160
This is Karen Richards.

32
00:02:51,280 --> 00:02:55,600
She is the wife of a playwright,
therefore of the theatre by marriage.

33
00:02:55,680 --> 00:03:01,800
Nothing in her background should have
brought her closer to the stage than Row E.

34
00:03:01,920 --> 00:03:06,720
However, during her senior year at Radcliffe,
Lloyd Richards lectured on the drama.

35
00:03:06,800 --> 00:03:10,720
The following year
Karen became Mrs Lloyd Richards.

36
00:03:10,840 --> 00:03:14,360
There are, in general,
two types of theatrical producers.

37
00:03:14,480 --> 00:03:18,800
One has a great many wealthy friends
who will risk a tax-deductible loss.
