RIP Mr. William Goldman - Ranking His 25 Movies


Recommended Posts


Sad sad news.  I was lucky enough to have a couple of interactions with him over the years.  He is the only writer to have a page on UltimateMovieRankings.com.  Totally bummed out tonight.

My Top 5 William Goldman Movies - In Alphabetical Order

All The President's Men

A Bridge Too Far

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid


The Princess Bride

*No Way To Treat A Lady is another movie that I really enjoy.

Rest in Peace Mr. William Goldman

Did it really? I don't really watch TV anymore except for TCM and sports. I just assumed because of his long-time association with Hee-Haw, Clark would get way more coverage than Goldman.

I'm making no personal criticism here, but in today's world, The Princess Bride holds a greater cultural significance than does Hee-Haw

Not arguing that, but I feel like in general, writers who are not also directors are extremely ignored by the mainstream media. Though I'm not against Goldman getting some spotlight. He certainly deserves it! I just assume Rob Reiner would get a billion times more credit for the movie than Goldman.
