The Margos dissect the differences between the 1973 William Goldman novel from the 1987 cult classic film directed by Rob Reiner
Inconceivable! The Margos decided to redo aBook Vs. Moviepodcast ep by taking on one more time (and even better) the book/movieThe Princess Bride. We are always surprised to find that our listeners did not realize that beloved classic movie was at one time a book. And that said book is very meta and multi-layered. Spoiler–we love BOTH of the versions ofThe Princess Brideand are so excited to be able to talk about it all once again!
In this episode we discuss:
The origins of the novel and its long history in turnaround
The plethora of differences between the book and movie
How the movie eventually became a cult classic
The incredible cast includingCary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, Chris SarandonandBilly Crystal.
Andrea the Giant’s real proportions and the experience he had making the movie
Hey there, Neighbors! Are you coming out of your candy corn-induced coma like us? Hope so ‘cos there’s so much to discuss! Shizz got real in NYC on Halloween so the neighbors start this episode talking about this latest act of violence. They also breakdown the latest on Kevin Spacey, Kathy Griffin, and that 70s Show guy. Also, find out why Bethenny Frankel needs to film herself crying. Margo has a few more podcast recommendations (there’s one devoted to Hallmark Movies, y’all!) and Erin finishes STRANGER THINGS and talks 90 Day Fiancee Finale and both neighbors talk Real Housewives of OC (“You’re not having a heart attack, Vicki!”); Dallas; & NJ. Here’s to a neighborly November!
In this episode, the Margos discuss the Ben Mezrich book “The Accidental Billionaire” that was published in 2001 and compare it to the 2010 classic film directed by David Fincher (our third Fincher adaptation!)
There is SO much to uncover here between what the world was like when Facebook was created, the state it was in at the time of the film’s release in 2010 and how the world uses Facebook now.
