FAYE DUNAWAY:
It is heavy. Well, I didn't expect this to happen quite yet but I do thank you very much and I'm very grateful. I would like especially to thank Sidney Lumet, Paddy Chayefsky, Howard Gottfried, Danny Melnick, and the great generosity of a rare group of actors, company of actors, in particular William Holden, Robert Duvall and Peter Finch. And may I just add, an especial thank you to the friends in the back room: Susan Germaine and Lee Harman. Thank you.
