The screenwriter behind "Princess Bride," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "Misery," William Goldman, talks to "The Writer Speaks" about how the movie industry has changed over the years.  Not for the better. Goldman's "The Season," about a season on Broadway, was an inspiration for my book "The $11 Billion Year: From Sundance to the Oscars, An Inside Look at the Changing Hollywood System."

    @Serpico,
    Goldman does not like talking about All The President's Men because for him, the whole experience was too unpleasant. I think it's a masterpiece, career bests for many involved, but while Goldman may agree it's good he doesn't like the memories.

    As a screenwriter, love hearing conversations like this, thanks.

    Don't leave out "All the President's Men". I'll have to watch this later.
