Mandy Patinkin on “The Princess Bride”

“The Princess Bride” was William Goldman’s hilarious and brilliant send-up of Hollywood “knights in shining armor” romances. Here’s an interesting bit from Mandy Patinkin about the movie:

Great book, great movie, great quote. Thanks for sharing.

Interesting take from a guy that’s considered to a major asshat that doesn’t get along with coworkers. At least that’s what I’ve heard. Who knows. I think he’s a great actor though.


We just watch TPB the other night, having purchased the DVD (because we’ve watched it a lot of times).

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

It’s interesting that Rob Reiner’s first films are a trifecta of endearing, well produced and long-standing, memorable classicstenor

The argument is there that his first seven all fit that description.

He did a small coming of age film called “Flipped” that got little notice but has his fingerprints all over it. Highly recommended.

I really liked “The Sure Thing”
