    • QUOTES (6)

      • Arthur Freed: (accepting the award for Best Picture) Thank you. And thank you from my brilliant associates who made this possible: Vincente Minnelli, Gene Kelly, and a great studio with real courage and leadership who supported me. Thank you.

      • George Stevens : (accepting his award for directing the film A Place in the Sun) Excluding Mr. Hornbeck, and Miss Head, and Mr. Brown, and Mr. Wilson, and Mr. Waxman, and Mr. Mellor, I'd like to say thank you to all of those other talented people that brought us here tonight. Thank you.

      • Bette Davis: (accepting the award of Actress in a Supporting Role on behalf of Kim Hunter) I wish I were Kim Hunter tonight. I've been asked to pick up her award for her. I know if she were here tonight she would say: How wonderful, how grateful, and thank you very much. Where is her award? [She is given the Oscar.] I will tell her of your applause.

      • Greer Garson: (accepting on behalf of Vivien Leigh for the award of Best Actress) It's an honor and a thrill to accept this for you, Vivien. I hope you're listening in New York. We're all very excited about it. God bless you and congratulations. I know she would want to thank you if she were here herself.

      • Karl Malden : (accepting his award for Actor in a Supporting Role) I haven't much to say because I haven't been here very long, but I can tell you how I feel: great. Thank you.

      • Humphrey Bogart : (accepting his award for Best Actor) It's a very long way from the heart of the Belgian Congo to the stage of the Pantages Theatre, and I'm very glad to say that it's a little nicer here than it was there. I just want to pay a slight, as a matter of fact a very big tribute to Mr. John Huston and Miss Katharine Hepburn, because they helped me to be where I am now. Thank you very much.

    • NOTES (1)

      • This was the first year in which the "Best Picture" Oscar was given to the producers of the film instead of the studio that released the film, this was due to the decline of the Hollywood studio system.
