I have a shameful sore spot for this movie. In its defense I present the production design, which is legitimately awesome. The story…?
One of two films that would make my top 10 lists for both coming of age and queer movies. The kids’ performances are just… awesome. Wish I could watch it without the voiceover though.
From imdb: ”During the filming of some scenes for The Princess Bride, the weather became markedly cold for Robin Wright Penn. Andre the Giant helped her by placing one of his hands over her head; his hands were so large that one would entirely cover the top of her head, keeping her warm.”
This is so sweet how can I NOT reblog this.
All of the behind the scenes stories about Andre the Giant were adorable like this, Apparently Wallace Shawn is deathly afraid of heights, so he was freaking out while they were doing the scene scaling the cliff and Andre was like “it is okay, I’ll keep you safe.” there’s a behind the scenes thing on the DVD and everyone is choked up and misty eyed when they talk about working with him.
Andre the Giant was a radiant human being.
My heart just grew three sizes.
File under: films I am excited to see.
The artist has a ton of posters up in different styles, very neat stuff.
