Harold Pinter net worth & biography:

Harold Pinter, CH, CBE (10 October 1930 – 24 December 2008) was a Nobel Prize-winning English playwright, screenwriter, director and actor. One of the most influential modern British dramatists, his writing career spanned more than 50 years. His best-known plays include The Birthday Party (1957), The Homecoming (1964), and Betrayal (1978), each of which he adapted for the screen. His screenplay adaptations of others' works include The Servant (1963), The Go-Between (1971), The French Lieutenant's Woman (1981), The Trial (1993), and Sleuth (2007). He also directed or acted in radio, stage, television, and film productions of his own and others' works.Pinter was born and raised in Hackney, east London, and educated at Hackney Downs School. He was a sprinter and a keen cricket player, acting in school plays and writing poetry. He attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art but did not complete the course. He was fined for refusing National Service as a conscientious objector. Subsequently, he continued training at the Central School of Speech and Drama and worked in repertory theatre in Ireland and England. In 1956 he married actress Vivien Merchant and had a son, Daniel born in 1958. He left Merchant in 1975 and married author Lady Antonia Fraser in 1980.Pinter's career as a playwright began with a production of The Room in 1957. His second play, The Birthday Party, closed after eight performances, but was enthusiastically reviewed by critic Harold Hobson. His early works were described by critics as "comedy of menace". Later plays such as No Man's Land (1975) and Betrayal (1978) became known as "memory plays". He appeared as an actor in productions of his own work on radio and film. He also undertook a number of roles in works by other writers. He directed nearly 50 productions for stage, theatre and screen. Pinter received over 50 awards, prizes, and other honours, including the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2005 and the French Légion d'honneur in 2007.Despite frail health after being diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in December 2001, Pinter continued to act on stage and screen, last performing the title role of Samuel Beckett's one-act monologue Krapp's Last Tape, for the 50th anniversary season of the Royal Court Theatre, in October 2006. He died from liver cancer on 24 December 2008. Wikipedia

#Fact
1Was a first cousin, twice removed, of actor Dean Collins. Harold's paternal grandparents, Fanny and Nathan Pinter, were also the paternal great-great-grandparents of Dean Collins (Harold's father, Hyman "Jack" Pinter, was the brother of Dean's great-grandmother, Dora Pinter).
2Appearing in Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tapes at the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, Royal Court, London [October 2006]
3He wrote screenplays based on Marcel Proust's "Remembrance Of Things Past" (for Joseph Losey) and Joseph Conrad's "Victory" (for Richard Lester) which were never filmed, but were published. On the other hand, he refused to publish the screenplay of "The Housemaid's Tale" because it was so severely compromised during the filming and he disowned the final film.
4His play, "The Caretaker," was nominated for a 1976 Joseph Jefferson Award for Play Production at the Victory Gardens Theater in Chicago, Illinois.
5Brother-in-law of Rachel Billington and Tom Pakenham.
6Joined the Donald Wolfit Shakespearean company in 1953.
7Father was a tailor.
8Has a father-son relationship with producer Sam Spiegel, according to Spiegel biographer Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni. Spiegel was quite taken with Pinter's genius, so much so it hurt the film adaptation of The Last Tycoon (1976), wrote "Tycoon" director Elia Kazan in his own autobiography, as Spiegel treated the screenplay as sacrosanct and wouldn't let Kazan change it to create more dramatic tension. Ironically, when Spiegel had first seen a screenplay written by Pinter in the 1960s (The Servant (1963), he had been appalled by its lack of professionalism.
9Awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 2005.
10Underwent radiation treatment for cancer of the esophagus in 2002.
11Supported a motion to impeach British Prime Minister Tony Blair after the Iraq war.
12Won Broadway's 1967 Tony Award as author of Best Play winner "The Homecoming." He has also received three other Tony nominations: twice as author of a Best Play nominee, in 1962 for "The Caretaker" and in 1972 for "Old Times," and once as Best Director (Dramatic), in 1969 for "The Man in the Glass Booth."
13In the early 1960s, he had an extra-marital affair with broadcaster Joan Bakewell. Later, Pinter went on to write what became the movie Betrayal (1983), which told the story of their affair.
14He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1996 (1995 season) for the Special Award for his lifetime achievement to the theatre.
15He allegedly declined a British Knighthood in 1996.
16Celebrated by the Manitoba Theatre Centre in a festival named Pinter Fest (January 2003). Several of his works were performed, such as, "Night School" and "The Hot House".
17He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 1966 and a Companion of Honour in the 2002 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to Literature and Drama.

#Quote
1I have written about 25 scripts over the years, three of them were never made and another three fucked up. I took my name off one and with some reluctance left my name on another. The one I took my name off was The Remains of the Day (1993), for which they took my script and rewrote it. But the truth is that the roughly 18 films that I've had made have not been touched. They've been filmed exactly as I wrote them. I'm not only talking about dialog but structure as well. I've always been very amenable, to put it mildly, to discussions about structure. It's such a delicate business, the structure of film, isn't it? What happens if a scene is not there but two minutes later? It's an eternal, never-ending search actually, which is very exciting. It really is.
2But, let's face it, the fact remains that Hollywood has always been an extraordinary bloody place. Always. Hollywood, mainly, is a kind of shithouse. But out of this shithouse, they've produced the most surprising films.
3I'll tell you something, and this is true: I've never been able to write a film which I didn't respect, I just can't do it. I'm very happy about all the films I haven't done.
4What concerns me most is shape and structure.
5The invasion of Iraq was a bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of international law. The invasion was an arbitrary military action inspired by a series of lies upon lies and gross manipulation of the media and therefore of the public; an act intended to consolidate American military and economic control of the Middle East masquerading
  • as a last resort, all other justifications having failed to justify
themselves - as liberation. A formidable assertion of military force responsible for the death and mutilation of thousands and thousands of innocent people.
6America is at this moment developing advanced systems of "weapons of mass destruction" and is prepared to use them where it sees fit. It has more of them than the rest of the world put together. It has walked away from international agreements on biological and chemical weapons, refusing to allow inspection of its own factories. The hypocrisy behind its public declarations and its own actions is almost a joke. America believes that the 3,000 deaths in New York are the only deaths that count, the only deaths that matter. They are American deaths. Other deaths are unreal, abstract, of no consequence. The 3,000 deaths in Afghanistan are never referred to. The hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children dead through American and British sanctions which have deprived them of essential medicines are never referred to. The effect of depleted uranium, used by America in the Gulf War, is never referred to. Radiation levels in Iraq are appallingly high. Babies are born with no brain, no eyes, no genitals. Where they do have ears, mouths or rectums, all that issues from these orifices is blood.
