I loved him in Colombo, but really the thing that cemented him in the heart of my generation was the grandfather in Princess Bride.

You have to be the first person I've ever heard admit that they actually watched Princess Bride. :D

You have to be the first person I've heard of who hasn't watched and loved it.  I'm sorry for you....

I'm now officially embarrassed. I got this mixed up with The Princess Diaries, which was silly and sucked. I haven't seen the Falk movie, so I won't comment on it.

He's only in it a little bit, but I think it's a classic.

So, ironically, now you're the only guy I've heard admit that they actually watched the Princess Diaries  ;)

No sweat.. it's an awesome movie with a Princess, a pirate, a giant and a revenge driven Spanish swordsman. And a grandfather and grandson.

Inconceivable!

Keep reading, Carl.  Turns out the guy was confusing Princess Bride with the Princess Diaries (whatever the heck that one's about)

It's a house favorite.  If it comes on the whole crowd just sits down and watches till it's over.
