There are some films that are so iconic, so brilliant and influential that they become a part of the zeitgeist and are granted cultural immortality. Obvious contenders include Star Wars (1977), Jaws (1975), Dirty Harry (1971) and This Is Spinal Tap (1984), but it’s one of Tap director Rob Reiner’s other films that has quietly become a beloved treasure and which is finally available on Blu-Ray.

Adapted by celebrated screenwriter William Goldman from his original novel, The Princess Bride is a rip-roaring tale of swashbuckling, kidnapping, romance, action and the power of true love. When the beautiful Princess Buttercup (Robin Wright) becomes engaged to Price Humperdinck (an excellent Chris Sarandon), several years after her true love Westley (Carey Ewles) is believed to have been killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts after going off to seek his fortune, she is kidnapped by a trio of dastardly hoodlums in order to provoke a war. »
