The Princess Bride, directed by Rob Reiner in 1987, was released 30 years ago. NPR's Linda Holmes says this anniversary is "a fine opportunity to track it down and watch it, trying not to anticipate its famous lines — or trying to leave them out of your understanding of it altogether — and just appreciating it for the simple, good-natured, off-kilter comedy it was when it was released."
