Did you spot the Spinal Tap hat in The Princess Bride at In The House?


In the film’s opening scenes, Peter Falk begins reading the Princess Bride to Fred Savage… You may have caught a glimpse of the boy’s baseball cap hanging near his bed. This cap was placed there by the movie’s director, Rob Reiner, to fulfill a request by Mark Knopfler, who composed the music for the movie. Knopfler, former frontman for Dire Straits, agreed to write and perform the music for the movie, if Reiner would place somewhere in the movie a cap he had worn in the movie “Spinal Tap”.
