The Princess Bride (Encore)

This week on the Scriptnotes podcast there is a rerun from 2019, when John and Craig did a deep dive into the movie The Princess Bride:

They discuss how the “abridged” structure brings us only the best parts of the story and what this means for the characters and world. From the frame story to the myth of the Dread Pirate Roberts, The Princess Bride shaped decades of screenwriters but would be inconceivable to produce today.

We also learn that this is one of Craig Mazin’s favorite movies and he’s seen it at least a thousand times, and that the whole movie is building up to Peter Falk’s final line in the framing story.
