A random clean up, facts gleaned from internet. I am not familiar with the subject matter. This article is basically a complementary stub to Joe Orton. Ianb 17:11, 21 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Merging into the Joe Orton article[edit]

against - the reasons for Orton's murder need contextualization and including Halliwell's relevant details there would be an extensive diversion, unless the Orton article grows substantially in length. Philip Cross 20:07, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

against - Halliwell is increasingly gaining interest as a writer and artist in his own right - the Evening Standard said, on the recent publication of Lord Cucumber and The Boy Hairdresser, "These works demand that we revise our opinion of Halliwell." Also, the Wiki article makes no mention of Halliwell's work as a collagist, or the exhibition he had in 1967. I will add this when I have time! Jmc29

against - A recent BBC drama about the comic actor Kenneth Williams featured both Orton and Halliwell and was careful to give them both distinct characters, with a great deal of pathos directed towards the latter. Halliwell is of definite interest as a person in his own right and not just a tragic footnote in Orton's story, with his influence on the latter defining himself as well as Orton. --Robirv 01:28, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

against - Kenneth Halliwell's murder of Joe Orton is well known. Even if Halliwell's works were not enough to ensure a separate entry, I think his role in Orton's life and death would be enough. I accessed this page by searching for Halliwell and would have been disappointed if I had been redirected to Orton's page.

against - Ditto - I came here looking for info about Halliwell. 23:01, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

A possible Halliwell and Orton image in a film[edit]

In the original 1967 Monterey Pop Festival I believe that Halliwell and Orton are capture in the audience during the performance of Country Joe and the Fish midway though the film. I do not know of any films that captured live images where the two authors are seen together therefore I am mention this possible sighting film here. I own a copy of the Criterion Collect of Films Directed by D.A. Pennebaker. The concert took place in June of 1967. My claim needs validation.The Budzone guy 00:52, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

They were both in Tangier in June 1967. I have Lahr's edit of Joe's diaries. I think he'd have mentioned it if they had taken a side trip to Monterey. Cross Reference (talk) 15:58, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Lead image[edit]
