I'm a huge fan of novelist and Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Goldman (Marathon Man, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President's Men, The Princess Bride), so I was excited to actually see a videotape of the man himself. In the piece, Goldman speaks about the "magical" place of New York City (I agree, wholeheartedly!), his first big break, and his wonderment at being paid to be a writer.
The occasion for this mini-documentary is the launch of three of Goldman's backlist novels in ebook format from Open Road Media, including his first novel, Temple of Gold, and Marathon Man, which was made into the acclaimed film (and forever made Goldman infamous in dentist's offices).
