"Mel Gussow: Why did you choose to direct
Vanilla? Harold Pinter: It's not an entirely achieved satire,
but I think it's much sharper and much funnier than was appreciated
here. It was totally dismissed here. I believe it was to do with
me. they treated it badly because I was involved. I did it because
I thought it was great fun. MG: I didn't think so. I thought it
was a case that you directed it for the money. HP: Let me tell
you, you never direct for the money. It's a very arduous bloody
thing, directing, and there's no guarantee you1re going to get
anything out of it. I thought it was a real satire on riches.
I don't think it was exaggerated."
