I want to thank Robert Redford for giving us this wonderful opportunity and Alan Pakula who was just terrific as our director, and I'm very happy to have had the opportunity to do it. And all the people who worked for us: from my assistants, the draftsmen, the carpenters, the painters and all of the many men who put it together. I also want to thank all you people who voted for me, because I didn't think destiny had an Oscar in store for me.
My thanks to Mr. Coblenz, Mr. Redford, Mike, and Gary, and Tom and the Academy. Thank you.
