WILLIAM GOLDMAN:
I had all kinds of cute, humble things to say, and they're all gone. Somebody ought to mention Gordon Willis who did an extraordinary job as cinematographer. I really do believe the acting level of the movie all the way through for a large cast was remarkable, and that's the work of Alan Pakula. And finally, this movie has been from the very beginning the obsession of Robert Redford. Thank you.
