Thank you. Thank you. I see my four sons. They are proud of the old man. And I am proud, too. Proud to be a part of Hollywood for fifty years. But this [holding up the Oscar] is for my wife Anne. I love you. And tonight I love all of you, and I thank all of you for fifty wonderful years. Thank you. Thank you.
