you know the princess bride? of course you do. everyone knows the princess bride. what you might not know is that it was filmed in my backyard. and I don't mean my backyard as in 'hey, look at that pretty picture of tibet. totally my backyard.' I mean that all this time, westley and buttercup have been traipsing around derbyshire. and I didn't know it until I watched it today and recognized the scenery.

after the dread pirate roberts poisons little bald guy, he and buttercup take off across the moors. this moor, actually:

they fight a bit. then they run to castleton and fight a bit more. buttercup tells westley to die and he tumbles down here.

entering from stage right (and up). she follows, and they live happily ever after.

in my backyard.
