1I don't think I have a strong sense of story [but] a moment when people speak, I know when it's strong and when it's not.
2We are not alike, but we are complementary. There's something he [director Sydney Pollack] doesn't have that I have, and there's certainly some things he has that I don't have. And we seriously try not to make any mistakes together.
3In those days, I thought I would write everything, Sydney would direct everything and Robert would act in everything. [on his screenwriter-director relationship with Sydney Pollack, with whom he has been collaborating since 1962 when the director revived Rafiel's play "P.S. 193."]
1He excelled at doctoring scripts, filling in dialogue and fleshing out the background of the characters. Much of his work was uncredited.
2Noted for his frequent collaborations with Robert Redford and Sidney Pollack.
3Studies at Brooklyn College interrupted by wartime army service in Europe during World War II. Graduated with a BA in 1947, then studied playwriting at Yale, earning a Masters Degree in 1950.
4His father, Leo F. Rayfiel, was a Democratic congressman and New York state district court judge.
5Because there wasn't enough money to pay him off for his additional writing on their first film together, The Slender Thread (1965), Sydney Pollack compensated Rayfiel with a new electric typewriter.
