NOTES

"Acting feels like a congenital condition to me - it's in my genes." --Burstyn quoted in Halliwell's Filmgoer's and Video Viewer's Companion, Ninth Edition, 1988.

Received and honorary doctorate of fine arts from NYC's School of Visual Arts in 1983.

Received an honorary doctorate from Dowling College (1983).

Burstyn is an ordained cheraga (minister) in the Sufi Order in the West.

She occasionally teaches acting at the New School for Social Research, New York.

"I'm doing whatever I can to maintain my integrity as a performing artist. These aren't roles like at 'The Exorcist' stage of my career. But I can fulfill them as best I can.

It's unfortunate but our society is such that, for women in Hollywood, you get to a certain age and just fall off a cliff. But in my case, I refuse to die. I will hang on, by a little finger if necessary." --Ellen Burstyn quoted in New York Post, August 20, 1996.
