Playwright
    (May 15, 1926-November 6, 2001)
    Born in Liverpool, England, United Kingdom
    Twin brother of playwright Peter Shaffer
    Wrote the plays 'Sleuth' (1970), 'Murderer' (1975) and 'Whodunnit' (1977)
    Wrote the screenplays for 'Sleuth' (1972), 'Frenzy' (1972), 'The Wicker Man' (1973), 'Death on the Nile' (1978), 'Evil Under the Sun' (1982) and 'Appointment with Death' (1988)
    He was frequently confused with his brother.
    'Murderer' and 'Whodunnit' come off as unsuccessful attempts to recapture the success of 'Sleuth.'
    He was married three times and divorced twice.
    After his death, his mistress sued unsuccessfully for a share of his estate.
    'Sleuth' ran for over 2,000 performances on both the West End and Broadway and won the Tony for Best Play.
    Christopher Lee reportedly called 'The Wicker Man' his favorite script.
    When one critic dismissed Sleuth as 'just entertainment,' he responded, 'It's a bloody sight harder to entertain than to bore.'
