Description

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 and backstage stories.

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.

    Truly enjoyed the behind the scene stories a of a great sweet movie. The artistic passion of all the actors is clearly shown in the stories of the Princess Bride production. A must read if you are a fan of the film.

    The first time I saw this movie was in college in the 90s. I have easily seen it 80-100 times and each time it gets better. Thank you Cary Elwes for providing us with this amazing piece of the story. I will treasure the story even more because of your book. Thank you.

    Love the movie so much. Enjoyed reading behind the scenes stories but the writing is stiff and formal - like it was written by your stuffy community college English professor. Still, worth it for the stories if you're a huge PB fan like me.

    The movie is in my collection, and I would watch it on and off to smile. Now, I have an insight into its making and of the people in it. Now, I smile even more when I watch it. It's a definite "must have" for one's collection.
  • Perfect

    Being one of the 5 college kids to not only see this movie at the time of its release, but see it 5 times in 4 days, I truly enjoyed this book. I read it in two sittings, and am sure I will read it again soon. I laughed out loud, and cried real tears. Being a superfan, I was swept into the tales, and felt I was part of it somehow. As a fan I thank you Man in black.
  • Andre stories worth the price

    Terrific book. The stories about Andre the Giant are worth the price of admission.
