About The Princess Bride (1987)

Based on William Goldman's novel of the same name, The Princess Bride is staged as a book read by grandfather (Peter Falk) to his ill grandson (Fred Savage). Falk's character assures a romance-weary Savage that the book has much more to deliver than a simpering love story, including but not limited to fencing, fighting, torture, death, true love, giants, and pirates.

About Movies We Love -- A message from Timothy Dowling, USC Alum, Screenwriter, and SCA Representative on the USC Board of Governors

One of the my favorite things about going to USC was in film classes occasionally you’d see a movie that you’d never seen before or one you’d never seen on the big screen and then it would become one of your favorite movies for the rest of your life.

One of my favorite things about living in Los Angeles is that occasionally we get to see great movies up on the big screen and occasionally have those that made the films come and speak. This is something really unique to our city and doesn’t really happen anywhere else in the world.

So when the Cinema School asked me to represent them on the Alumni Board of Governors, the first thing I wanted to do was start a program at the school where we show great movies that we love and get people that worked on them to come to campus and speak about them.

It’s called MOVIES WE LOVE. And the hope is to just show you movies that we love that maybe you love also or have never seen or never seen on the big screen.

Hope to see you there. And FIGHT ON,

Timothy Dowling
