amazon_http_request failed; op=ItemLookup, parameters=Array ( [ResponseGroup] => Variations,Images,ItemAttributes,OfferFull,Large,EditorialReview [ItemId] => 0709047703 [MerchantId] => All ) .

The veteran screenwriter’s own account of the job, which is something of a classic. From the writer of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President's Men and Marathon Man, Oscar-winning screen writer William Goldman presents his memories and views of movie-making, and of acting greats such as Redford, Olivier, Newman and Hoffman. Not a how-to book, but it will tell you a lot more about Hollywood and the screenwriter’s place in it than many worthier tomes.
