CHARLES L. CAMPBELL:
What a lovely beginning to the evening. Ladies and gentleman of the Academy, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. My friend Louis would like to say a word.
LOUIS L. EDEMANN:
I remember the first time Chuck and I screened "Who Framed Roger Rabbit." It was a maze of pencil tests, actors acting with no one, sometimes on empty stages. After the screening Bob Zemeckis turned to us and said, "Guys, trust us. We think we know what we're doing." Obviously he did. On behalf of myself, my partner Chuck, and the sound editing crew, I would like to thank Bob Zemeckis, Amblin, Walt Disney Studios for this great opportunity. To my wife Pat and kids: Clear the mantel.
