This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   When they reach the top of the cliff, Vizzini unties the rope from around an oak tree leaving the man in black 300 feet below on a rock. Vizzini cuts the rope with a knife and it is tied around a rock. It leaves the man in black only 50 feet below.
   Vizzini doesn't want the man in black to see them with the Princess so he tells Inigo to kill the man in black once he reaches the top. Then he leaves. He believes the man in black has already seen them with the princess so he tells Inigo to wait and if he doesn't fall, to kill him with the sword. Inigo tells him he will use his left hand to make it interesting.
   Fezzik is refered to as a Turk. Vizzini says he found Fezzik in Greenland.
   Inigo cuts the man in black several times while they are dueling on top of the Cliffs of Insanity. The man in black is not cut by Inigo during their battle.
   As the man in black scales the Cliffs of Insanity, Inigo looks to see if he has 6 fingers on his right hand. Inigo asks him if he has 6 fingers after he helps him to the top.
