While he is also known for screenwriting Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President’s Men, he will always be the man who gifted me one of my all time favorite stories: The Princess Bride. Thank you Mr. Goldman, for a delightful, clever, and fun adventure I’ve revisited often in my life.
