Read through the most famous quotes from Neil Simon
Simon chose not to write the screenplay for his first film adaptation Come Blow Your Horn preferring to focus on his playwriting. I wanted to tell a story about real people. In The Gingerbread Lady he combines comedy with tragedy; Rumors (1988) was a full-length farce; in Jake's Women and Brighton Beach Memoirs he uses dramatic narration; in The Good Doctor he created a “pastiche of sketches” around various stories by Chekhov; and Fools (1981) was written as a fairy-tale romance similar to stories by Sholem Aleichem.
Simon's facility with dialogue gives his stories a rare blend of realism humor and seriousness which audiences find easy to identify with. ” His style ranged from romantic comedy to farce to more serious dramatic comedy. He has received more Oscar and Tony nominations than any other writer.
