“I want my father back, you son of a bitch!”

I remember being a kid, maybe nine years old, and my dad was taking my sister to see The Princess Bride and asked if I wanted to come along and my thought process was something like “Princesses, ew. Brides, ew.”

And of course now it’s one of my favorite movies.

Came across this above clip today, Mandy Patinkin on his motivations in playing Inigo Montoya.  Powerful.  And also, if you’re a fan of the movie, might I ask if you’ve read the book?


One thought on ““I want my father back, you son of a bitch!”

  1. Best, most fabulous, most favorite movie. I just adore Mandy Patinkin. And YES, I have indeed read the book! As a kid, that was how I heralded the start of summer vacation each year: I’d check The Princess Bride out of the library and reread it :)
