But I know what it says.

When author Crowley used to get drunk and hurt people, the next morning he would send them telegrams, with the message, “Can you find it in your heart to forgive me?”

This was told me by Edward Zang, my former acting teacher at NYU Tisch, who understudied in the original production.

I was taken aback by it and didn’t know what to think until I rewatched it on DVD as an openly gay adult in the 2000s when I recognized it as a landmark of gay cinema and probably William Friedkin’s best work.
