Can it really be 25 years since a schoolboy sick with fever first lay in his bed and listened to his grandfather read him a magical tale of a beautiful maiden, a lovestruck farmboy, a vain Prince, a giant from Greenland, a Spanish fencing master, a six-fingered Count and a literal miracle worker? Few if any films of the 1980s have been more beloved by successive generations of moviegoers than this hilarious and enchanting storybook romance from director Rob Reiner (This Is Spinal Tap) and legendary screenwriter William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), featuring a peerless comic cast that includes Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Carol Kane, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, André the Giant and Peter Falk. Presented in partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and New Wave, the Film Society's young patrons group. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
