Adventures in the Screen Trade: A Personal View of Hollywood and Screenwriting

With a career of writing many great screenplays, and fixing some in need of help, William Goldman knows what it takes to be a successful screenwriter. In his ‘Adventures in the Screen Trade’ Goldman includes his ‘Oscar’ and multi award winning script, for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Beyond being a master at his craft, in ‘A Personal View of Hollywood and Screenwriting,’ he shares his knowledge of the inner workings of the tinsel-town movie making machine, and the many studio executives who drove the process. Readers will quickly learn that this is really 3 books in one.

No hold back memoires naming names in “Hollywood Gossip,” “My Advice to Aspiring Screenwriters,” and sections on writing and Hollywood, make this a good read for aspiring Screenwriters and movie buffs as well. And there’s more. Goldman also includes in his book a short story he wrote called ‘Da Vinci’ with discussions on it and the short screenplay that accompanies the story. Interviews with Cinematographer, Gordon Willis, editor Dede Allen, and other great filmmakers, make “Adventures in the Screen-Trade” much more than a ‘how to’ compendium. It makes it another important book to add to your Hollywood and Screenwriting library.
