Birth Sign




One of the twentieth century's most original and important writers, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969, Samuel Beckett was the author of 'Waiting for Godot' (1952), one of the few plays in theatrical history to redefine the possibilities of the medium. Long fascinated by the cinema (especially silent comedies, a major influence on much of his work, including 'Godot'), Beckett apparently approached Sergei M. Eisenstein in the 1930s and offered to work as his assistant, but Eisenstein never replied. Although most of Beckett's work was written for the stage or the page, he did write one original film script, the 20-minute (almost) silent film Film (1965), which starred his idol Buster Keaton in one of his last film appearances. He also wrote or rewrote several plays for television
