I had wanted to read this book for years, ever since typing innumerable papers for University of Texas Radio-Television-Film students forced to read and report on it for some beginner class. It wasn’t their reports that interested me, but the fact that this text was considered the sine qua non of the university RTF world–the text that you needed to have read, because everyone else had. Goldman’s credentials were substantial, having written some quite substantial films both in critical and box-office terms, like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President’s Men. He further endeared himself to me by his wonderful book and film, The Princess Bride. But I never read this book for years because I wanted to own a hardback version of it. Browsing this past year in the stacks at the Bellevue Half-Price Books, I chanced upon just that, and finally was able to fill a decade old longing.

Adventures in the Screen Trade is somewhat dated now, even though it is only 13 years old. The movie trade is moving and shifting at an incredible pace (although not as quite as fast as the Internet), and what is golden one year, can be video-fodder the next. Goldman’s expose of the in-and-out of movie-making, from the screenwriter’s perspective, is uncomfortably close to the old adage about sausage and politics–you don’t want to see either being made. Yet, like an automobile wreck on your way home from work, you find that you just can’t help from looking. Goldman does a good job of presenting the business straight-forward, if with a tinge of understandable bias for the writer, that underlines the power of stars and the blockbuster mentality. A sequel, updating this book and adding Goldman’s extra thirteen years of experience, would be welcome, I think. ( )

(Note to self, paperback copy has been read enough such that it's falling apart. If you suddenly find yourself looking for it? It's probably fallen to bits.) ( )

My officemate Susan, a huge Redford fan, insisted I read this book in 1987 or 88 and I'll always be grateful to her. The opening explanation of stardom explains a great deal about how the movie business works, and the analysis of Butch and Sundance is a classic of narrative study. The final experiment in converting a rote short story of the type taught in high schools to a screenplay is disappointing, but something can be learned from the discussions with different craft professionals about why it fails.

I bought this book second-hand this year. It was me (? I) that was at fault with this book not the author. I hadn't realised it was written twenty-six years ago and also that I'm not an aspiring screen-writer so not looking for tips. If I'm honest I was probably wanting a little more insider gossip. Tut, tut. ( )

Screenwriters are still what Sam Goldwyn called them - 'shmucks with Remingtons' (read word processors now) - but their fees reflect the spendthrift madness of a business that doesn't understand business. Any cash I have in the bank was made not from my primary trade of novelizing but from writing scripts for films that were never made and, so it always seemed at the time of signing the book-length contract, never had any chance of being made...

The sincerity of Goldman's wrath and disgust is never in doubt, but he had no right to expend those emotions in a book so ill-composed that it is an insult to the reader. Damn it, Goldman's enemies lie anywhere but in Brentano's on Sunset Boulevard or in Smith's at Charing Cross. It is a freshman composition in which sometimes the shift key is depressed and, for no special reason except possibly the blindness of the sweat of anger, left so, the word shit is the major pejorative, and slack slang dribbles like unwiped mucus.
