Standing tall at seven foot four, Andre "The Giant" Rousimoff was a Frenchman known for his WWE wrestling career, but more recently identified by his role as Fezzik the giant in Rob Reiner's film The Princess Bride. Those who knew him personally often referred to to him as the "gentle giant." While Andre did have considerable success in the limelight, his feats also caused him great physical pain and cruel remarks; he was considered a modern freak show in 1980s sports. This is the first and only graphic novel adaptation of Andre Rousimoff's life.
