To cheer his ill grandson up, Grandpa reads him a story; The Princess Bride, a tale of the love between the beautiful Buttercup and the stable boy Westley, a love cruelly interrupted by Westley’s tragic apparent death at sea when seeking his fortune. Heartbroken, Buttercup has sworn never to love again, but accepts the marriage proposal of the rich and handsome heir to the throne of Florin; but death is no barrier to true love, and in a story filled with exotically-accented swordsmen, big-hearted giants, sadistic torturers, vile swamps, Rodents of Unusual Size, the Dread Pirate Roberts and a somewhat embittered miracle worker, the story twists and turns on a path filled with adventure. Will the True Love win the day? Will Inigo Montaya find the six-fingered man who murdered his father? Will Humperdinck’s evil plans come to fruition?
As a tribute to him, and to reconcile his yearly requests, we are screening the favorite movie of Dan, one of our longest serving volunteers, before he sets sail around the world, in the hope that he too will get sick of living as the dread Pirate Roberts and one day return.
