Cary Elwes and Robin Wright in The Princess Bride

Relative unknowns when The Princess Bride was released, Cary Elwes and Robin Wright made you believe in true love in their respective roles as farm boy Wesley and future princess Buttercup. Their exchange of commands and “as you wish” is more passionate than all the dialogue in a thousand lesser films.

They became one of the most beloved movie couples thanks to their witty repartee before Wesley went to sea, in the fire swamp, and even after her wedding and his death. (Don’t worry, things work out OK.)
