Pinter in Old Times


Henry Fonda Theater

 

Pinter is the ideal performer, studied, exact, natural, he pours out the brandy at his hip.

Nicola Pagett is his wife, Liv Ullmann the visiting old chum from the arty days.

The theater is in disrepair now, it was new.

Orson Welles had just died, Pinter recites the credits without visibly flinching. He takes off his glasses at the remark of his youthful attractiveness.

He tears from one to the other in the last scene, weeping.
