accidental connections

So, the little girl in Losey and Pinter’s ACCIDENT appears to be this person, Carole Caplin, daffy new ager and style adviser to Cherie Blair, wife of our former prime minister. Their friendship came under fire after it emerged that Caplin’s partner was a convicted conman and had had financial dealings with Mrs Prime Minister.

And Nicholas Mosley, who wrote the novel Pinter adapted, and later screenwriter of THE ASSASSINATION OF TROTSKY, is notable for being the son of British fascist leader Oswald Mosley. His younger brother Max, president of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile, having successfully lived down the fascist family connection for decades, was recently involved in a nazi sex-tape scandal. Oops.

Joseph Losey week: END.

  1. the imdb review of accident describes the dialogue as ‘pinteresque’. i don’t think this sort of thing ought to be allowed.

  2. Yeah, criticising Pinter for writing pinteresque dialogue seems a bit much. But that’s basically what Peter Bradshaw did when he reveiwed Sleuth in the Guardian — “Get to the point!”
