The Academy has the horrible taste to have a star, choking with emotion, present this deathbed award so that there can be no doubt in anybody's mind why the award is so hurriedly given.

What a pity all countries are not.

But kiss him quickly, before you go, otherwise he might think you are angry; he is used to suspecting he is doing something wrong.
