A Conversation for Mark Knopfler - the Singer/Guitarist
Princess Bride Started conversation Jul 12, 2000
His work for the Princess Bride was great IMHO. But then I really love the Princess Bride so I guess I'm biased...

Yeah, what is it about that Movie? I must have seen it a million times. It's one that you can just watch over.... and over.. and over...
The soundtrack is really good, you're right. There's something soothing and romantic about the whole thing.
Now that our summer has gone to pot and it's raining every weekend, sounds like a prime choice for next Sunday afternoon...

Yup I might go watch it myself today... I've gotten so I can match the music with the scene because I have the soundtrack as well... It's such a great movie

Mostly the William Goldman screenplay, I think.
That, or the alluring call of Andre the Giant.

You mean "EVERYBODY MOOOOOVE!"? I love that part...

Best characters have to be "inconceiveable" Viccini and Indigo "Hallo... my neme is Indigo Montoya... You keeled my fadar... prepare to die..." Montoya.
Oh, and all that fairy tale stuff is pretty gushy too.

I'm going to get the DVD when I have a chance.

I just got it a couple days ago for only $14 which is good for a DVD... It was the last one in the store. I love the whole movie, and the duel scene is great because it goes along with the music so well... I love the movie. Now all I have to get is the book...
Adz Posted Aug 11, 2000
There's a book? I wonder if they based the movie off an original book... rather like how they did in the movie.
Saint Taco-Chako (P.S. of mixed metaphors) Posted Aug 17, 2000
Yes, there was a book first.
William Goldman wrote both the book and the screenplay for the movie. He's good about things like that.
However, except for a few extremely intersting plot devices that got cut (Remember that room Wesley was kept in before he was tortured? There's an incredible backstory to that) it reads almost word for word like the movie, "Inconcieveable!"'s and all.
Well, maybe a bit better...
William Goldman is a weird little master-storyteller.
