"I have acquired a taste for Patinkin verging on addiction," Clive Barnes wrote in the New York Post in 2001. Maybe you know him as Inigo Montoya, the Spanish fencer in "The Princess Bride," who shouts, "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!" Or perhaps you were introduced to him in "Yentl," as the serious yeshiva boy whose confused feelings for Babs' cross-dressing Torah student entwined him in romance. Or maybe you simply know him as Mandy Patinkin, master showman.
