RIP William Goldman 1931-2018

Cover of The Princess Bride movieI will always remember the first time I watched the movie Princess Bride. Inigo Montoya, Miracle Max and his wife Valerie, Fezzik, Vizzini, Wesley, The Dread Pirate Roberts and of course, Buttercup, all came to life before my young eyes.

This was my introduction to William Goldman, who passed away today at the age of 87. Goldman was best know for this movie, first as a book and then later as the cult classic we all know and love. Goldman also scripted several other popular movies, including All the Presidents Men and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
