About Amadeus:

They were, Peter Shaffer recalls, quite the odd couple. To turn his play ''Amadeus'' into a film script, the English playwright spent four months holed up in a Connecticut farmhouse with Milos Forman, the Czech film director. Isolated from the rest of the world in what they called their ''torture chamber,'' the collaborators suffered from writer's block together, listened to Mozart records together, and improvised scenes from the play together. Much of their afternoon work sessions, however, was devoted to arguing. They argued about scenes and words, and the order of scenes and words. They argued about who would say what in the film. They even argued about which of them would cook dinner.
