1[on the Academy Awards snub of The Exorcist (1973), which out of ten nominations won only for Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay (which went to Blatty himself)] The Academy should fold its tent and go back to baking apple strudel or whatever they can do well.
1Blatty won a scholarship to Georgetown University, where he earned his bachelor's degree in 1950 and later earned a master's degree in English from George Washington University in 1954.
2His parents, Peter Blatty (a carpenter) and Mary Mouakod Blatty, were Lebanese immigrants. His father deserted the family when William was six, leaving Mary Blatty to raise five children.
3He served in the U.S. Air Force Psychological Warfare Division from 1951 to 1954.
4He really loved Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist (2005); he said to The Houston Chronicle that the film is "a handsome, classy, elegant piece of work".
5Years before he became famous for writing "The Exorcist", Blatty appeared on Groucho Marx's quiz show, You Bet Your Life (1950), posing as an Arab sheik with so many wives that he could not recall how many he had. Groucho was completely taken in. When Blatty revealed that it was a hoax after a couple of minutes, he told Groucho that he did it because George Fenneman had said that Groucho was an expert at spotting phonies. Groucho replied, "That is incorrect, because I've had Fenneman in my employ now for 14 years." Blatty won $10,000 on the show, and when Groucho asked what he intended to do with the money, Blatty replied that he was going to take a year off from his job and write a novel. That novel was "The Exorcist",.
