Many people don’t know this, but The Princess Bride is actually based on a 1973 fantasy novel written by William Goldman. The known version in the 1987 film, directed by Rob Reiner, who managed to make a chick flick that guys seem to like, or even love.
Chick flicks aren’t supposed to be considered as cult films, but this one is. It’s also number 88 on The American Film Institute’s (AFI) “AFI’s 100 Years…100 Passions” list of the 100 greatest film love stories.
These posters were made by Nathan Pyle, who has these and different great stuff up for sale on his website.
For those of you who don’t know who Buttercup, Dread Pirate Roberts, Humperdinck, Fezzik and Inigo Montoya are, or if you’ve never heard “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die”, than it’s time you find a way to watch this film.
It won’t change your world, but it certainly is quite a fun little gem that has turned into an essential part of 80’s pop culture.
