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 comeCary 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 anniversa. I am so tempted to give it 5 stars just for how much I love learning any new tidbit about this movie I am such a Princess Bride fan girl This is me when I found out the book existed THIS movie cover is my favorite see how the title is the same upside down The book covers how the different actors came together to be part of movie Cary talks about his nervousness and how sweet he was on Robin Cary talks about how grueling learning the swordplay was Just for fun here is a link to the famous swordfight BUT WITH LIGHTSABERS HEREYou'll hear about the little people inside the ROUS costumes and how one came to be arrested just before he was needed for filming the sceneBilly Crystal and Carol Kane were so great together even behind the scenes They came together before filming and created some backstory and generally worked their chemistry out beforehand Billy is always great at improv and ad libbing Apparently some of these scenes were too risue to be put in the final film including these little gems “Don’t bother me sonny I had a bad day — I found my nephew with a sheep” “True love is the greatest thing in the world — except for a good BM” Cary who was supposed to be mostly dead couldn't hold it together during this scene They had to use a dummy on the slab Rob Reiner wouldn't even stay in the room but watched from a soundbooth so he could guffaw away Mandy Patinkin actually sustained his ONLY injury on the set by holding in his laughter he actually bruised his ribs Cary violently broke his toe by agreeing to driveride Andre's only mode of transportation while on set Andre was too large for any other vehicle Three things in the book really touched me The first was Andre who was the gentlest guy ever We hear about his childhood and younger days how much he could drink at one sitting here is his hand with a normal size beer and a rip roaring fart for the ages while on set We hear how he calmed an acrophobic cast mate and how he kept Robin warm on the cold days by placing his huge hand gently on her head apparently the man generated an amazing amount of heat The second thing that touched me was hearing of Mandy Patinkin's inspiration for his part as Inigo Montoya His father had recently died from cancer He took all that pent up anger and decided in his mind's eye that he would be defeating his father's cancer if only in his imagination So when he says I want my father back you son of a bitch He was really honestly feeling those emotions about his father and the anger he had toward the cancer that claimed his life He is also very gracious to everyone who every asks him to say his iconic line He says he always does it I wonder if it is because he sort of relives that moment whenever he says it That line just means so much to him The last thing that touched me had to do with Cary's visit to his grandfather during the filming he also died while before the movie wrapped Very touching thoughtsI'm just happy to know these random things about the movie One happy dance for the road

As with a few things in life I discovered The Princess Bride late in life this past week to be exact However from the first scene onwards I was enthralled and in love Therefore and because Ginger said it would be immensely funny and insightful I had to read this book I'm usually too sceptical about memoirs or making of books It tells the story of how Rob Reiner made the movie adaptation of William Goldman's The Princess Bride as told by Wesley aka Cary Elwes with the kind help of his fellow cast members of which several interview snippets are thrown inThough the print edition has cool production pictures and even some private ones from the cast and crew this audio version was the best because it made it even funnier and lovelierWe start with the horrendous ordeal almost any movie has to go through to get approval Hollywood is just stupid followed by Rob Reiner meeting the author and convincing him to grant them the rights after the Hollywood disaster the author had bought the rights back Then comes casting and finally the actual production and reception which wasn't too good at first But this description sounds dull This book however is anything butThe way Cary Elwes lovingly retells his experiences the fact that all the cast members contributed the humbleness and heart of all involved the genius of Rob Reiner a truly magical and exceptional story that leaves no doubt about why the movie is still so important to people all around the world Also some experiences are almost unbelievable Like when Elwes meets a fan who tells him how the movie saved his life My favourite story about this involves a man and his son whom I met while I was filming a movie in Rochester New York The father told me how the movie actually saved him from going insaneI always have time for fans but this guy definitely piued my interestHow if you don't mind my askingHe proceeded to explain that he had been on active duty in the military and had recently returned from a long deployment in Ira His base had been located in a highly dangerous area There were lots of snipers IEDs and mortar fire he told me After losing a lot of his comrades morale amongst the unit had sunk to an all time low So every night from that point on before the soldiers went out in their Humvees to secure the perimeter or go on patrol their commanding officer would give them their orders and send them on their way with these words Have fun storming the castleThanks to your movie we were all able to complete our mission on that base as our CO was able to always make us smile before heading out And that did a lot for moraleThat is profoundly powerful and underlines the importance of humour that the creators and cast definitely appreciated tooBut of course there were some incredibly funny moments too like the toe story especially that Rob Reiner and Andy Scheinman thought he had just found a wonderfully elegant way of sitting down bwahahahahahaThen there were the impressive parts most notably the fencing Cary and Mandy had to learn to fence both left handed and right handed and we wanted to make sure that they could design a really cool fencing seuence So when we finally got to it I was so proud of the fact that the two of them I mean Mandy had started working on it even before we went over to London; he was working on it I think for about four months and Cary worked for only about two months I'm very proud of the fact that every single frame of actual sword fighting is both of them There are no doubles except for the acrobatics when they flip off the bar The actual swordplay every single frame is just the two of them Left handed and right handed I put it up against any swordfight in movie historyAnd Rob Reiner is right That IS impressive It is also said at one point that the swordmasters made them train with their left hands first and that in the end Inigo was actually better with his left despite being right handed which explains why I thought his fight seuence right at the beginning of the iconic swordfight was better than when he had switched to his supposed strong handWhat struck me was how many people of the movie business back then I actually know without actively knowing them Like the two swordmasters Peter Diamond and Bob Anderson both dead in the meantime sadly I've been a fangirl of theirs ever since I saw my first swordfight on televisionOr André the Giant I know him from The Fall Guy and The Six Million Dollar Man mostly Let me tell you that Elwes' story of his fellow cast members were at least as intriguing as the production details themselves Especially André stood out though for he must have been one of those rare truly gentle people André knew he wasn't going to live to a ripe old age and even told Billy Crystal at one point during the shoot We don't get such a good break the little guys and the big guys We don't live so longI think that is why Anré carried himself in life with that beatific smile of his He never took a single day for granted not knowing if it might be his last He wanted to share how beautiful life was with everyone he came into contact with He was as generous hearted and sweet a person as I ever hope to meet The kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back a shirt big enough for four or five people He never let anyone pay for a meal or drink as he wanted to be the one to give instead of receivingJust to show anyone not knowing who I am talking about just HOW BIG this guy was it was genetic by the way and yes caused his death before he ever turned even only 50This is him in the movie with Princess Buttercup aka Robin WrightThe famous beer can picture also mentioned in this book And yes it's regular sized and has not been tampered withThis is him with Conan aka ArnieSo it shouldn't come as a surprise that back injuries aside André could lift an Aston Martin with his bare hands yep he did it once He sometimes made fun of his friends by moving their parked cars while they were in a building lolThis book then is a nostalgic read even for me It makes you relive the movie and get a deep insight into life back then and it gives you the impression of truly knowing all the people involved there were some surprising and personal revelations from all involved in here However it also makes you miss your childhood while still making you feel cozy just like the movie itself I hope the movie will continue to be ageless and beloved and yes I'm gonna rewatch it tonight
