Trivia for week of May 29th

Alfred Hitchcock, when accepting the Irving Thalberg Memorial Award in 1967, gave one of the shortest acceptance speeches in Oscar history. What was it?

Last Week's Answer (highlight line below):
B. Tori Amos

side note - Hitchcock is one of the undisputed masters of cinema, and yet he NEVER won an Oscar for Best Director. But many of his films are routinely mentioned in the top ten lists of best films of all time - Vertigo, North by Northwest, Rear Window, Notorious - the list goes on and on. Treat yourself and watch a Hitchcock film soon - you'll be glad you did!
