The Princess Bride on the BIG SCREEN

What a treat!  My bestie and I watched my favorite movie ever -- The Princess Bride -- on the big screen!  AMC theaters (free plug here) is doing a "Classics Series" and wisely chose to offer this '80s fairy tale.
Despite this being my favorite movie of all time, I did not see it in the theater when it came out in 1987. Like most of its die-hard cult fans, I first watched the film after it was released on video tape.

And now for a lesser known fact about this movie from Mandy Patinkin, AKA "Hello, My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die!"

As with the entire movie, I have always loved the fight scene between Inigo and Count Rugen.  However, after learning this new information about Mandy Patinkin, the fight scene is amazing.  Watch it again.  If you have ever lost someone to cancer, or had someone close to you had a battle with cancer, I dare you to watch this scene again and not be moved!
