Here is another page of my notes on the program Horton Foote and David Mamet gave at the 92nd Street Y in 1986, the first part of which is here. I will post additional material if I find more pages.
Mamet: [In Hollywood] if someone gets shot in Act III, they don’t see why they can’t get shot in Acts I and II also.
Mamet: More and more, the kind of movie I like is a silent movie.
Foote: I mean, human beings in Chicago.
Mamet: ...wishing they hadn’t sent the limo because you know you’re going to pay for it at the story conference.
Mamet: They always invite me to come on the set... they never mean it. Sure, I’d love to stand on the corner for three hours feeling like a damn fool while they massacre my screenplay.
Mamet: It’s like the mother of Moses—you just watch your baby go [when you sell the copyright].
Mamet: All you can put on the screen is the narrative line or what Aristotle called the ‟structure of the incidents.”
Mamet: Yes, but it was done by venal and unpleasant people.
Mamet: I did too. I was an actor in the worst way.
