Bobby Stone Film Series Presents The Princess Bride
Rob Reiner’s 1987 American romantic fantasy comedy film tells the story about a farmhand, Westley, and the rescuing of his true love, Princess Buttercup, from the odious Prince Humperdinck. The film stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin and many more outstanding actors. The story is presented in the film as a book being read by the grandfather (Peter Falk) to his sick grandson (Fred Savage), thus preserving the novel’s narrative style and capturing the film’s audience. The film was inducted into the National Film Registry in 2016 and deemed as “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.” It was ranked number 50 on Bravo’s “100 Funniest Movies” and number 88 on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 greatest film love stories.
