The Princess Bride

  • April, a long time fan of "The Princess Bride,"  was studying art and wanted to paint the movie's last scene where Westley and Buttercup do their famous kiss.  Turns out that, while not getting the Old Masters' style exactly right, it was a fair abstract effort . . .

As You Wish

When Buttercup told Westley they should only have two or three hundred children, he asked if she meant just the first year. When she said yes, Westley simply replied, “As you wish . . .”

As You Wish

When Buttercup told Westley she thought they should only have three or four hundred children, Westley said, “In the first year?” When she said, “Yes”, he simply said, “As you wish.”

A Kiss is Still A Kiss

True, it didn’t summon up memories of Bogart and Bergman with Sam playing “As Time Goes By (A Kiss Is Just A Kiss)”, or Burton and Taylor in Cleopatra, or Westley and Buttercup in the final scene of The Princess Bride (rated the most passionate and purest kiss of all time), but, hey, they were snakes.  They probably weren’t going to be chosen to be on “Dancing With The Stars”, either. . . . .
