Noted author and script writer.

William Goldman, Butch Cassidy screenwriter, dies at 87

[www.bbc.co.uk]

For many, though, he will be best remembered for The Princess Bride, a part-parodic fairy tale set in a world of giants, pirates and "rodents of unusual size".

Miracle Max: He probably owes you money huh? I'll ask him.

Inigo Montoya: He's dead. He can't talk.

Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.

Inigo Montoya: What's that?

Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

Cary Elwes’ As You Wish, his book about the making of The Princess Bride, also speaks of what it was like working with Goldman. Hint: his recollections are very favorable.



It is what it is.

As You Wish is also a great Audible book.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

RIP. One of the few films that was nearly as good as the book.
