Princess Buttercup

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.

BUTTERCUP
Farm boy. Polish my horse's saddle. I want to see my face shining in it by morning.

WESTLEY
(quietly, watching her) As you wish.
This is the first we see of Princess Buttercup in The Princess Bride, one of my all time favorite movies. Wonderfully played by Robin Wright (before she became Robin Wright Penn) personifies the ultimate princess.
 
James Brady in the Parade Magazine is In Step With Robin in this week's Sunday section. The full post doesn't appear on the web until Tuesday (why?).
 
This serves as a reminder to get work on "Business lessons from The Princess Bride".
 
What is that?
 
Why not? Can't we all learn something to use in business from the movie?
 
This I gotta see!
 
Well, be patient, it will come sooner than you think.
 
Oh boy, this oughta be good!
 
You'll see.
