The Princess Bride (1987): "As You Wish… "

     Directed by Rob Reiner, and written by William Goldman (based on his own brilliant novel), The Princess Bride (1987) became an instant Classic… full of quotable lines: "As you wish…", "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to Die." The story is presented in frame fashion, as a fantasy book being read by a grandfather to his sick grandson. The "true love" film is spellbinding, with great performances throughout, including Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, Christopher Guest, Peter Falk, Wallace Shawn, Fred Savage, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane, Mel Smith and Peter Cook.
