Following the bestselling "Adventures in the Screen" Trade Goldman has even more secrets to tell. He shares behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the sets of such movies as "The Princess Bride", "Misery and Maverick", and fills us in on what it's like to work with Mel Gibson, Michael Douglas, Clint Eastwood, amongst many other Hollywood players. He tells us what does and doesn't work on film and why, and conducts a virtual writer's clinic on classic moments in great screenplays: among them the crop-dusting scene in North by Northwest and the zipper scene in "There's Something About Mary". Finally, Goldman brings together some of today's top screenwriters to analyse and doctor a screenplay he created specifically for this book. "Which Lie Did I Tell?" is the definitve guide for any inspiring screenwriter in revealing the nuts and bolts behind the glitzy facade of contemporary Hollywood film.

“Which Lie Did I Tell?”

Hilarious, informative and full of some of the best advice for writers I’ve ever read. Goldman doesn’t hold back and this book becomes so much more than a screenwriter’s memoir evolving into a step-by-step how to... More
