“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).

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”
