Popular mythology has gently chided Greer Garson for supposedly giving the longest Academy Award acceptance speech in the history of the Oscars; actually, her speech was somewhat more in the ballpark of six minutes. It was, however, given at the end of a long evening, and Garson herself has recalled that she not only felt she had many people to thank, but also that she sincerely thought the moment an appropriate one to raise some issues about the award and the potential of the Academy itself.
