William Goldman, Oscar-Winning Writer of ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,’ Dies at 87
William Goldman, who won Oscars for his original screenplay for “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and his adaptation of “All the President’s Men,” died on Friday in his Manhattan home, according to the the Washington Post. He was 87.

His daughter Jenny Goldman cited complications from colon cancer and pneumonia as the cause of his death.

“Butch Cassidy,” a revisionist Western that helped popularize the buddy movie, announced Goldman as a screenwriter able to balance big laughs with a sense of adventure, while “All the President’s Men” cemented his status as a deft writer of suspense. The two are considered to be among the finest screenplays ever written and exemplify Goldman’s range and versatility.

In a 2015 interview with Signature, Goldman was asked about his ability to bounce from genre to genre.

“You cross your fingers and never stop,” he said. “Praying is also good.”

Demi Moore ‘Just Never Felt Good Enough’ Before She Found Recovery
Demi Moore was honored with Peggy Albrecht Friendly House’s Woman of the Year Award on Saturday night, and used the occasion to recall turning her life around early in her career. “I was spiraling down a path of real self-destruction and no matter what success I had I just never felt good enough,” she said to those in attendance at the women’s recovery center’s ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“I had absolutely no value for myself and this self-destructive path, it really quickly brought me to a real crisis point,” she added, per Variety. “It wasn’t clear at the time, maybe it was divine intervention, but two people who I barely knew stepped up and took a stand for me and presented me with an opportunity, which I guess was more like an ultimatum — unless I was dead, I better show up.”

Moore continued, “It

'The Sandlot' Prequel on Its Way; Here's What We Know So Far

We just heard that a remake of Indecent Proposal is in development. The original romantic drama was a box office success, though its critical reputation is not exactly flattering.

Peter Bart: Why Has Female Empowerment Led To So Many Downer Roles For Women?

Peter Bart: Why Has Female Empowerment Led To So Many Downer Roles For Women?
The #MeToo movement notwithstanding, I’ve been worried about women lately, perhaps because I’ve been seeing too many movies. At a time when women are achieving more muscle in managing their lives and careers, the female characters they portray in movies lack both muscle and self-esteem. Women need a movement – any sort of movement. They also need help at the box office.

Let’s start with Melissa McCarthy, Charlize Theron and Amy Schumer. In Spy, McCarthy three years ago displayed hilariously lethal skills, but in her new Life of the Party she’s a mopey mom whose daughter is embarrassed by her and whose husband dumps her. Meanwhile, Theron, the delectably homicidal heroine of Atomic Blonde, becomes a downbeat, defeated housewife in Tully. Schumer, who devours men in Trainwreck, is dopey and delusional in I Feel Pretty, cast as a woman whose self-esteem is tied to her (imagined) svelte figure.
