The Princess Bride”

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 a 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 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
