  • Quotes

    • Shirley Booth : (accepting her award for Best Actress) Thank you. Thank you, everybody. I'm a very happy and a very lucky girl. My luck has many, many names. I won't attempt to list them all. All you have to do is look at the screen credits and you'll know what I mean. I never could have done it alone. You know I couldn't. It's been a long, long climb. I guess this is the peak, but the view has been wonderful all along the way. I want to thank my old friends for their faith, my new friends for their hope, and everyone for their charity. Thank you.
