Which Lie Did I Tell

William Goldman, screenwriter for many many Hollywood movies (Princess Bride, Ghost And The Darkness) reminisces and gossips about the behind the scenes on the production of these movies.

Pretty good- I was shocked (shocked!) by the revelation that the “original” Princess Bride, the book he refers to in his novel, never existed! That bastard!

Something that is interesting is his description of how he got blacklisted from hollywood- and it isn’t the personality conflict you might expect. Basically he was attached to too many failed productions. Not failed as in “they lost money” but failed as in “they weren’t shot.” Crazy.

The second half of this book is the screenplays- read the amazon review of this book to get an idea of the intention of doing this. He printed screenplays in his earlier book as well.
