RIP Horton Foote

A two-time Oscar winner (for his classic adaptation of 1962's To Kill a Mockingbird and his screenplay for 1983's beautiful Tender Mercies), a Tony nominee and a Pulitzer Prize winner for The Young Man from Atlanta (1996), winner of a Drama Desk career achievement award in 2006...and a true gentleman of the theater, most recently on and Off Broadway with the prescient inheritance comedy-drama Dividing the Estate. Ninety-two years honorably spent.
