The Princess Bride is essentially a perfect film. The old, yet endlessly quotable movie is crammed full of heart-wrenching subplots, and it's somehow even better when you learn about some of the delightful behind-the-scenes stories. You may have watched the movie over and over, but it's a safe assumption there are still some surprising things you don't know about The Princess Bride.
It's the little things that make digging into famous film productions so enjoyable. There are so many fascinating anecdotes surrounding The Princess Bride - from actors' stories to daring stunts - everybody's favorite fantasy/comedy masterpiece, it really deserves a "making of" documentary.
