While home sick in bed, a young boy's grandfather reads him the story of a farmboy-turned-pirate who encounters numerous obstacles, enemies and allies in his quest to be reunited with his true love.
Cary Elwes (Westley) and Robin Wright (Princess Buttercup) were so reluctant to end their time with the film that during their final shared scene (the horseback kiss), one or other of them would keep requesting another take for all sorts of made up reasons.
The Grandson: Hi, Mom.
While climbing the cliffs of insanity, Buttercup's arms alternate from down at her sides (during the wide dummy shots) to wrapped around Fezzig's shoulder. It would be impossible for her to remove her arms from around his shoulder, as her hands are tied.
Buttercup is referred to on-screen by name, but is only credited as "The Princess Bride."
In the edited TV version of "The Princess Bride" the word, "Bitch" said by Inigo Montoya is muted out.
