William Goldman: Four Screenplays
Two-time Academy-award winning writer gives his irreverent insights into the writing, producing and casting of four of his own screenplays: Marathon Man, The Princess Bride, Misery, and Academy winner, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. In four merciless revealing essays, he covers the psychic and political terrain of Hollywood that gained him such a following from his first book, Adventures in the Screen Trade. He dissects how to write a screenplay, how stars happen, the art of adaptation, and the process of casting, all critical elements to his own successes. Includes the script excerpts for each film, although the examples are not necessarily those up on the screen, proving his case about how difficult, how collaborative, and how intoxicating the filmmaking process is. He holds nothing back, nothing!
