A year ago the Directors Guild of America wanted to say thank you to the American motion picture industry, and this is a hell of way to say you're welcome. Thank you very much.
Thank you to Bob Wise and David Shepard. To a one-man cheering section named George Sidney. To Gil Cates of the Directors Guild, and Michael Franklin of the Directors Guild, and the eighty-three hundred members of the Directors Guild of America who stand with me here. And thank you so much for making those precious images for me.
