Fun Fact

Andre the Giant was almost not cast as Fezzik. He refused the part at first because he felt he was not good enough. Others that were offered the part were Arnold Schwarzenegger, Richard Kiel (who plays Jaws in the James Bond films), and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Not Just A Kissing Movie

In 1989 I won a VHS copy of The Princess Bride at a bowling league end of season banquet. My name was selected for a prize and as I walked up to receive it I was excited to see my loot. After opening it I was sure that I accidentally received one of the prizes meant for girls. I had never heard of it, the title was not appealing, and the cover showed a silhouette of two people staring lovingly into each other's eyes. Needless to say I was bummed. The cassette sat unopened for at least a year.

I would eventually discover that it wasn't just a kissing movie when I stayed home from school sick for an entire week. After a few days of watching re-runs of Gilligan's Island and I Dream of Jeannie and complaining to my mother that I was bored, she suggested I watch "that movie you won".

It didn't take long to realize that I was basically the boy being played by Fred Savage, and the movie became an instant favorite.
