Reseñas

La bella Buttercup jura amor eterno a Westley, que parte en busca de furtuna y es asesinado por unos piratas. La doncella, obligada, se promete al príncipe Humperdinck de Florin, un bellaco al cual sólo le interesa la caza.
El mejor esgrimista, el hombre más inteligente y el más fuerte del mundo son contratados por los enemigos de Florin para raptar a Buttercup. En la huida, sufren la incansable persecución de un hombre enmascarado que los retará uno a uno en su propio terreno. En La Princesa Prometida, William Goldman ha reunido todos los elementos clásicos de los grandes relatos, ambientados en un mundo de fantasía medieval, imprimiéndoles su fino sentido del humor.
