    R.I.P. WILLIAM GOLDMAN (Princess Bride scribe)

    Perhaps one of Hollywood's most solid screenwriters passed away today.
    While best known as the author of the novel The Princess Bride and its subsequent screenplay, Goldman also penned such seminal screenplays as Harper, The Hot Rock, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, All The President's Men, The Marathon Man (he also wrote the novel on which he based his screenplay), Misery, A Few Good Men, A Bridge Too Far, The Stepford Wives, and many other classics.

    He was the gold standard all other screen writers aspired to.

    The thing I found interesting about him is that a large percentage of the screenplays he wrote were adaptations of other author's novels...
