Death of William Goldman, scriptwriter of several cult films, at the age of 87


Born in Highland Park, Illinois, Villyam Goldman began as a novelist and published his first novel in the 26th, the Temple of the Gold, which was well received by critics.

But as a scriptwriter, success will be worldwide, writing an impressive series of Hollywood productions.

Butch Cassidi and the Kid (1969), starring Paul Nevman and Robert Redford, will be his passport of fame, a film that allows him to win the Academy Award for Best Screenplay.

He will then continue with the "Men of the President" (1976), which will be earned by the second Oscar, "Marathon Man" (1976), "Most Too Far" (1977), "Princess Bride" (1987) and "Misery" 1990).

In an interview with PBS in 2000, he explained that his whole life was scared to outstrip spectators and systematically use a series of "tricks" to entertain him.

"What I have is what I had when I started: a sense of dialogue and history," he said modestly, saying he had no opportunity to move staging.

He explained that there was no recipe for film script writing. "I wish there was one," jokes in this interview.

Villiam Goldman will choose his entire life to live in New York, far from Hollivood, he was tormented.

"Hollywood has a lot of buzzing and lies," he said during an interview with PBS.

He even wrote the book "Adventures in Screen Trade", in which he paints a visiological picture of the film industry.
