The masked pirate gets the girl? A woman named Buttercup? No way a movie like this will win over an audience. The As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride HC Book tells the story of the movie that did just that… and it’s still winning over audiences twenty-five years later.
Written by Cary Elwes, the dreaded Dread Pirate Roberts himself, this 272-page hardcover book features 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. You’ll even find out the truth behind all those rumors regarding off-screen romances that were flying around during filming.
Not enough for you? Inconceivable… but okay. The book also includes a foreword by Rob Reiner and a limited edition original poster by acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey.
The As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride HC Book will be available October 4, 2014 but it can be pre-ordered now for $18.71 at Amazon.
