‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ and ‘Scent of a Woman’ Writer Bo Goldman Dies

Date: May 29, 2024 Time: 17:10:40

Oscar-winning screenwriter Bo Goldman has died in the United States. This was reported by The Independent, citing his son-in-law Todd Field. The cinematographer died on July 25 in Helendale, California. Field did not disclose his cause of death. Goldman was 90 years old.

In recent years, Goldman lived in Rockport, Maine. His son Jesse passed away in 1981 and his wife died in 2017. The screenwriter is survived by four daughters, one son, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Robert Goldman was born on September 10, 1932 in New York in the family of a theater producer. He began his career on Broadway as a playwright, then moved to television. Goldman began writing screenplays when he was in his 40s. Soon success came to the author. Director Milos Forman asked Goldman to write the screenplay for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which was released in 1975.

For this work, Goldman received the first Oscar. Later, the screenwriter wrote scripts for such films as “Rose”, “Shift Change”, “Little Nikita”, “The Smell of a Woman” and “Meet Joe Black”. The second “Oscar” brought him the script “Melvin and Howard.”

“If there is one train of thought that runs through my work, it is a passionate desire to make people real and capture their lives on screen. I find life so wonderful that trying to capture it in art is like trying to capture the light from the stars,” Goldman said.
