Legendary Screenwriter William Goldman Speaks

What Lies Did He Tell?

♦ Back in 2013, legendary screenwriter William Goldman spoke about his lengthy career and here’s that wonderful interview with him on YouTube…


Here’s his wikipedia entry: William Goldman (born 12 August 1931) is an American novelist, playwright, and screenwriter. He came to prominence in the 1950s as a novelist, before turning to writing for film. He has won two Academy Awards for his screenplays, first for the western Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) and again for All the President’s Men (1976), about journalists who broke the Watergate scandal of President Richard Nixon. Both films starred Robert Redford.

His other notable works include his thriller novel Marathon Man and comedy-fantasy novel The Princess Bride, both of which Goldman adapted for film.

Author Sean Egan has described Goldman as “one of the late twentieth century’s most popular storytellers.”
