As You Wish - Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride - Joe Layden, Cary Elwes, Rob Reiner

The Princess Bride is one of my childhood sick day movies. Watch every time it's on TV movies. Watch with my friends ad nauseum movies.


Cary Elwes, the main author, a former crush of mine,  and star of The Princess Bride,  loved making this movie. So did Rob Reiner, Billy Crystal, Robin Wright, Carol Kane and a host of others whose thoughts appear in boxes peppered across Mr. Elwes narrative. You can tell they genuinely enjoyed their parts in creating this movie. And being a huge fan I'm so grateful they did.


I loved all the back stories! It was fun to read about a part in a movie, and then watch it looking for the things mentioned. I encourage you to do this - that was half the fun for me! This book made me smile and fall in love with the movie all over again.


A must read for any Princess Bride fan - also a great gift idea.
