Book Vs Movie Podcast
“The Princess Bride”
The Margos(once again) dissect the differences between the 1973 William Goldman novel from the 1987 cult classic film directed by Rob Reiner
(RIP William Goldman 1931-2018)
Inconceivable! The Margos decided to redo, replay and honor the late, great William Goldman in this Book Vs. Movie podcast ep by taking on one more time (and even better) the book/movie The Princess Bride. We are always surprised to find that our listeners did not realize that the 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 of The Princess Bride and 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 including Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, Chris Sarandon and Billy Crystal.
- Andrea the Giant’s real proportions and the experience he had making the movie
