PETER MASTERSON 1934-2018
Peter Masterson was one of the nicest people I ever interviewed. I am sorry he is gone. He was intelligent, friendly, encouraging, and skilled as an actor, director and writer.
He was married to the actress Carlin Glynn. The cinematographer Peter Masterson is his son, and the actress Mary Stuart Masterson is his daughter. I interviewed Mary Stuart when her fine film, The Cake Eaters, was shown at the Stony Brook Film Festival. I was glad, at the time, to be able to tell her how much I liked her father.
Peter Masterson was best known for his Tony nominated adaptation and direction of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. (He won the Drama Desk Award for Best Director. Carlin Glynn won both the Tony and Theater World Awards for Featured Actress.) He also directed the film Trip To Bountiful, which won an Oscar for Geraldine Page, which was adapted by his cousin, Horton Foote, who had written the original stage play. Peter played Katharine Ross' husband in the original adaptation of Stepford Wives. Mary Stuart, then just 10, made her film debut as his daughter in that film.
