William Goldman, the famed screenwriter of some of Hollywoodâs most
iconic films, has died at the age of 87. Among his most recognizable
credits, Goldman wrote Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the
Presidentâs Men, and The Princess Bride, among many others. Goldman
began his career as a novelist and transitioned to screenwriting in 1965
at the age of 34.
Here's a famous quote, not from The Princess Bride:
What's the matter with you?
I can't swim!
Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill ya.
