Two-time Oscar-winner William Goldman, tongue in cheek and a twinkle in his eye, adapts his bestselling novel for Reiner's splendid romantic adventure.
I believe that what William Goldman was trying to tell us, in his book version of the story, is that life is made up of reality, sprinkled with what I would call romanticism of the realist....
Still questing acclaim, he decided to cast a really big spell with a magnificent fairy tale, "The Princess Bride."And so it came to pass that the young and the young-at-heart alike were granted their wish: a movie for the whole family.

He sets off for America “to make his fortune across the sea.” She later finds out that he and his ship have been murdered by the Dread Pirate Roberts “who never leaves captives alive.” Scene: Humperdink castle, Prince Humperdink is announcing his bride-to-be and we find out it is the Princess Buttercup....

The Princess Bride (Novel)

Without the flashback, we would not understand why Inigo has great desire for revenge.
