Links: The Princess Bride

IMDB's Memorable Quotes page for The Princess Bride seems to cover the entire screenplay. That sounds about right.

Christopher Sunami at cites The Princess Bride, both the book and film, as an example of "reconstructivist art" where "the disassembled elements of art and meaning have been reassembled in new and better ways. . .…to reawaken a sense of the Real in a world where everything has been demonstrated to be an illusion…" Other examples include Star Wars, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band, Maus and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

Here's the official site for the book, where you can have the missing scene emailed to you.

Finally, apparently someone out there needs SparkNotes for The Princess Bride, which is just the saddest thing I've seen in a long time.
