The Princess Bride…
Hi everyone, so I’m sitting here and what comes on my TV ? …… One of my favorite movies of all time.
“The Princess Bride” Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Many Patinkin, Carole Kane, Billy Crystal, Andre the Giant, Christopher Guest, Peter Falk and Fred Savage, just to name a few in this stellar 1987 film.
I know the dialogue by heart, but I’m never disappointed by the film. From the fire swamp, to the wedding and the sea chase and most importantly the sword duel, I am always amazed at how fresh this film is to me.
I’ve read that the fencing scenes are authentic except for the bar swinging part. They include genuine fencing action. Also, being a fan of CBS’ “Criminal Minds” it’s a unique experience to see Mandy Patinkin in those two totally juxtaposed roles.
