The Most Successful Broadway Failure

If any writer can be called successful it is William Goldman. He is not only one of the most successful high quality screenwriters (Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, All The President's Men, Marathon Man), but also the author of one of the best books about Hollywood (Adventures In The Screen Trade). So I smiled when I read this confession: “I am a failed playwright. I had three shows on Broadway by the time I was 30. They all flopped, and I fled.”
