  1. ^ lists this work as a "play", but it is actually a 4-page dramatic sketch; it lasts approximately eight to ten minutes in production. It was first produced as a "curtain raiser" for Death and the Maiden by Ariel Dorfman at the Royal Court Upstairs in London, in July 1991, which went on to Washington, D.C.; its production poster featured on identifies it as a "sketch". "The New World Order" is also identified as a "sketch" in a review of the Royal Court première by Mel Gussow, "Critic's Notebook: On the London Stage, a Feast of Revenge, Menace and Guilt". Online posting. New York Times 31 July 1991. Recent productions and publications do refer to it more generically, as a "play", following the website's "Plays" section.

  3. ^ Harold Pinter's official site lists this in the section for "Prose – Fiction," but it was produced as a sketch on stage in a revue, according to Baker and Ross.

  5. ^ There are discrepancies between the IMDb release and award dates for this film and those provided in scholarly publications. Betrayal at IMDb Edit this at Wikidata lists the film's release in New York as "19 February 1983" and its London release date as "October 1983." According to Steven H. Gale, however, in Sharp Cut: Harold Pinter's Screenplays and the Artistic Process (Lexington: UP of Kentucky, 2003), it was "Released" in both London and New York "in 1982" (256, 415). It was distributed by Twentieth-Century Fox International Classics and first screened in movie theaters in New York in "February 1983," according to Susan Hollis Merritt, Pinter in Play: Critical Strategies and the Plays of Harold Pinter (1990; Durham and London: Duke UP, 1995) 236, 300; the first film reviews of such New York commercial screenings cited by Merritt date from 20 February 1983 on (236–39). The film was nominated for 1983 Academy Awards for "Best Picture" and Pinter for "Writing" in the category "Best Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium" (Gale 256, 415); cf. Academy Awards Database, accessed 28 June 2007. The IMDb appears to be a year off in listing its Academy Award and BAFTA nominations as 1984 instead of 1983.
