    I m a sucker for William Goldman But this REALLY was useful I will say it was better than Part I An absolute must have on shelf for any screenwriter.While I took many notes, I know, like his first back, I willbe pulling this off of the shelf and using it as a reference.

    In this sequel to screenwriter William Goldman s first memoir, Adventures In The Screen Trade , basically carrying his memoirs forward to the time period 1980 2000, Goldman captures the appeal and basic readability and charm of volume one I think it s marginally inferior to its first book, but it s still very good.Goldman has a gift for writing amiable anecdotes about Hollywood They read very conversational and

    I ll start this off by saying I love movies penned by William Goldman.I ll also say that, for my money, the novel of The Princess Bride is funnier than the movie.So with those two things in mind, join me as I walk through the economically depressed streets of San Pedro, CA I m there with a friend, killing time while we wait for the Lovecraft Festival to start up and next door to the soon to be crowded Whale and Al

    I want to write a screenplay.I want to be friends with William Goldman, author of The Princess Bride and this awesome book He has the most delightfully conversational style This book gets pretty technical, but I like that I don t know if a non writer would enjoy it quite so much, but maybe if he or she just skipped over the advice in grey, it would be just a book full of dirt on a screenwriter s adventures in Hollywood among oth
