Happy Friday Everyone!
I loved the movie “The Princess Bride” from the first moment I saw it. It is such an entertaining and amazing movie. If you haven’t seen it I suggest that you watch it because it is a beautiful movie. One of the main characters in the movie is played by Cary Elwes. He wrote As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride to tell the fans some behind the scenes secrets and stories.
The description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“From actor Cary Elwes, who played the iconic role of Westley in The Princess Bride, comes a first-person account and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cult classic film filled with never-before-told stories, exclusive photographs, and interviews with costars Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Mandy Patinkin, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner.
The Princess Bride has been a family favorite for close to three decades. Ranked by the American Film Institute as one of the top 100 Greatest Love Stories and by the Writers Guild of America as one of the top 100 screenplays of all time, The Princess Bride will continue to resonate with audiences for years to come.
Cary Elwes was inspired to share his memories and give fans an unprecedented look into the creation of the film while participating in the twenty-fifth anniversary cast reunion. In As You Wish he has created an enchanting experience; in addition to never-before seen photos and interviews with his fellow cast mates, there are plenty of set secrets, backstage stories, and answers to lingering questions about off-screen romances that have plagued fans for years!
With a foreword by Rob Reiner and a limited edition original poster by acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey, As You Wish is a must-have for all fans of this beloved film.”
This book had me laughing at all the stories that happened behind the scenes, and seeing the relationship between the cast is a wonderful thing to read about. This book gives fans everything they are looking for, and it will make you want to watch the movie again. After reading this book you will have a new respect for the movie and even see it in a different light.
Go on an inconceivable journey of laughter and friendship!
