Where can I see Stanley Donen's 1997 Honorary Academy Award acceptance speech?

I've been trying to find online a video of Stanley Donen accepting his honorary academy award in 1997 without much success. I have a very vague memory of it and I'm longing to see it again. It's been taken down from YouTube and I was wondering if anyone knows where else it may be hiding. My search skills are crap.

It's the best acceptance speech I can remember seeing, legendary director of musical films starts singing "Cheek to Cheek" to his golden man, and I've been wanting to see it again for ages. Recommendations for online resources are good but also I'd be prepared to buy a decent compilation of Oscar moments if that's the only way I can see it again.

Best answer: Are you sure this is not the speech on YouTube link this is the one he wins the honorary oscar with Scorsese introducing.

Response by poster: Thank you so much for letting me know! It had been removed from YouTube when I posted this question and now it's back again (and the quality of it is excellent!) Best acceptance speech ever! Now I need to get rid of that 'stumped' tag.
