When I first saw THE QUILLER MEMORANDUM, I knew something was really, really different. That difference was Harold Pinter's screenplay. Any one who has read THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT'S WOMAN and then viewed the movie of Pinter's screenplay will appreciate his genius.--George Kelley
Maybe, George, but I've seen 2-3 of his plays and hated every one of them.He was influential, however.Jeff
By happenstance I recently watched Lagrishe, Go Down, a BBC production with a much younger Judi Dench and Jeremy Irons. The script was written by Pinter. It was a script without much plot, perhaps the fault of the novel it was based upon. So my feelings about Pinter are ambivalent.
You can't argue with The Homecoming and A Kind of Alaska. Pinter was a damn fine writer.
"Anonymous" is right; QUILLER MEMORANDUM was a tour-de-force.
