NOTES

In late 2001, Pinter, who had been a heavy smoker, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and underwent chemotherapy.

Inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame in 1998.

Joseph Losey on why he liked Pinter: "Observations of characters, a very acute awareness of class dynamics and contradictions. He does superbly evoke the visual for me, but I don't think he has any visual sense at all." --quoted in "A Biological Dictionary of Film" by David Thomson (New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1994)

"I have enormous respect for Harold. I felt the combination would make a good wedding. And it did. Including our differences and fights! But there was an openness that I liked. What Harold does is get right to the point, he doesn't flower it and decorate it. We both love the book. And it was one of the best working relationships I can remember with a writer." --Jerry Schatzberg, director of "Reunion" (1975).
