John Irving On The Film Version Of The Hotel New Hampshire
Here is a link to a fascinating essay by author John Irving on Tony Richardson's adaptation of his novel THE HOTEL NEW HAMPSHIRE. It's a fascinating read, and it is great to hear Irving's own honest reactions to the film. For the most part his thoughts are positive with some reservations. I don't agree with his comments on Nastassja's performance, but admire his candor, and he doesn't display any of the spite so many of the film critics of the day did.
