“The Princess Bride” (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1987). This much loved and oft-quoted romantic comedy adventure is as charming and funny as ever. As the grandfather in the film (played by Peter Falk) says, the story has “fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…” etc. Inconceivable! The terrific ensemble cast also includes Fred Savage, Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane and Christopher Guest. Music is by guitarist Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits fame. Screenplay by William Goldman; based on his book of the same name. Directed by Rob Reiner. “No more rhymes now–I mean it.” “Anybody want a peanut?”
