Man Candy Monday: Mandy Patinkin


Oh, Mandy Patinkin. You give me so many feels.

You had me at “hello”.

The Princess Bride (1987)

I’ll take you naked…

Yentl (1983)

Or with clothes on…

Yentl (1983)

I want to run my hands through your hair…

“Sunday in the Park with George” (1986)

And gaze longingly into your eyes…

Impromptu (1991)

You really are really, really, ridiculously good looking…

Impromptu (1991)

Except for that one time you played Quasimodo, but that’s the point…

The Hunchback (1997)

You’re just one fine human being, no matter what.

The Princess Bride (1987)

About the author

Sarah Lorraine


Sarah discovered her dual passion for history and costume right around the age of twelve. Dragged kicking and screaming to her first Renaissance Faire at Black Point, she was convinced she was going to hate it, but to her surprise, she fell head over heels in love with the world of reenactment and dress up immediately. Her undergraduate degree is in Clothing & Textile Design, and she has a Master's in Art History and Visual Culture. When she’s not hauling crap to SCA events and ren faires, Sarah enjoys reading true crime books, writing fiction, and sewing historical clothing from the Middle Ages through the 20th-century. One of these days, she might even start updating her old costuming blog again.

    Mandy is marvelous … I saw him in concert once and he was charming. Looks good, good actor, great singer. We have a disc of The Man of La Mancha with Placido singing Quixote and Mandy as Pancho. Also, Mandy’s disc of Yiddish songs is great.

    He had me as Che in Evita, then I wanted to help him find the three fingers man in Princess Bride, and I wanted to be his muse in Sunday in the Park With Georges…
    Mr Pantinkin is an amazing actor – Chicago Hope & Criminal Minds & Homeland b are recent roles. He is a beautiful person, too.

    Wish you had a screencap of Mandy in Alien Nation. Even with the “potato head,” as he called it, he rocked. And James Caan had trouble keeping a straight face playing opposite him.

    Ragtime! Set in New York the early 1900s (with Elizabeth McGovern as Evelyn Nesbit if memory serves)

    I am such a sucker for a man with a beautiful singing voice. And Mandy Patinkin does it to me every time. Have you ever heard the original cast recording of “The Secret Garden”? Reduces me to sobbing, every time. Also, he’s real purty to look at.

    Holy Hannah! He can sing! (Ok, I knew he could sing, just never actually heard it)…. Wow! *Is actually jaw-on-floor speechless*

    So hot. Oh my god, so hot. One of my first crushes, after I saw The Princess Bride in the theater.

    Only thing missing was pics from Princess Bride showing off his thighs – while THRUSTING during the sword fight, perhaps. He had good thighs.
