Horton Foote, 1916-2009

Horton Foote, the playwright who also won two Oscars for his screenplays, has died at the age of 92. Foote's Oscars were for adapting the novel To Kill a Mockingbird for the screen, and for his screenplay for Tender Mercies. Interestingly enough, I haven't posted about either of these movies, but have mentioned two other of Foote's works: Tomorrow, which is based on a story by William Faulkner; and The Trip to Bountiful, in which Foote adapted his own play.
