Combination romantic comedy/adventure film, The Princess Bride is based on the 1973 novel of the same name by William Goldman. The film was directed by Rob Reiner from a screenplay by Goldman. The story is presented in the film as a book being read by a grandfather (Peter Falk) to his sick grandson (Fred Savage), thus effectively preserving the novel’s narrative style. This film is number 50 on Bravo’s “100 Funniest Movies,” number 88 on The American Film Institute’s “AFI’s 100 Years…100 Passions” list of the 100 greatest film love stories, and 46 in Channel 4′s 50 Greatest Comedy Films list. In the United States, The Princess Bride has developed into a cult film since its release and is one of the most consistently requested titles by Paramount patrons. A classic fairy tale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and yes, some kissing.
