GRANDFATHER:

Oh. Well, thank you very much.

It's very nice of you. Your vote

of confidence is overwhelming.

All right.

(Book open now, be

begins to read.)

The Princess Bride, by S.

Morgenstern. Chapter One.

Buttercup was raised on a small

farm in the country of Florin.

DISSOLVE TO:

The story he's reading about, as the monochromatic look of

the bedroom is replaced by the dazzling color of the English

countryside.

GRANDFATHER:

(off-screen)

Her favorite pastimes were riding

her horse and tormenting the farm

boy that worked there. His name

was Westley, but she never called

him that.

(to the kid)

Isn't that a wonderful beginning?

THE KID:

(off-screen doing his best)

Yeah. It's really good.

GRANDFATHER:

(off-screen reading)

Nothing gave Buttercup as much

pleasure as ordering Westley

around.

CUT TO:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

4.

BUTTERCUPS FARM - DAY

BUTTERCUP is standing, holding the reins of her horse, while

in the background, WESTLEY, in the stable doorway, looks at

her. Buttercup is in her late teens; doesn't care much about

clothes and she hates brushing her long hair, so she isn't

as attractive as she might be, but she's still probably the

most beautiful woman in the world.
