Synopsis: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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.

About the Author: Cary Elwes is a celebrated English actor who starred in The Princess Bride before moving on to roles in Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Glory, Days of Thunder, Twister, and Saw, among many other acclaimed performances. He will always be indebted to The Princess Bride, he says, for changing his life and giving him a career that has spanned decades. He lives in Hollywood, California, with his family.

Book Description Touchstone. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Book Condition: New. From Cary Elwes, who played Westley in The Princess Bride, this first-person account offers a tantalizing behind-the-scenes look at the making of the much-loved film—a production that he assures us was every bit as much fun to make as it is to watch, and one that he will always be grateful to have been a part of. The spirited memoir is filled with previously untold stories, exclusive photos, and interviews with co-stars Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn, Carol Kane, and Fred Savage, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner. Inside the book's dust jacket is an original poster of Westley and Buttercup by artist Shepard Fairey. "Even if you don't have a crush on Cary Elwes, you'll enjoy this vivid behind-the-scenes account of the making of The Princess Bride. His stories, especially those involving Andre the Giant, will leave you in stitches. Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Billy Crystal, and others also recount their experiences. An amusing account of a group of performers who came together to make a heartfelt film that is loved by many."—Library Journal 259. Bookseller Inventory # 71659
