A Valentine’s Day that does not include a look at “The Princess Bride,” one of the greatest– and funniest– love stories of all time? Inconceivable!

“The Princess Bride” (1987) remains a beloved cult classic nearly 40 years after its release… and after you listen to this fun episode, you’ll remember exactly why!

Why did author William Goldman and director Rob Reiner have to fight so hard to bring this fractured fairy tale to the silver screen? What sword-fighting mishap landed Cary Elwes in the hospital? Why was the character of Inigo Montoya so personal to Mandy Patinkin, remaining his favorite role to this day? And what famous athlete-turned-actor almost played the role of the lovable Fezzik in Andre the Giant’s place? We discuss all this and so much more!

 

So if you’re in the mood to revisit a nostalgic film that will have you rooting for true love, a son seeking revenge on his father’s killer, and classic tales of romance and adventure, then as you wish. 

The show is available on your favorite podcatcher and the Scandal Water Podcast YouTube channel.
