Cary Elwes memoir about The Princess Bride probably the only book I want to read

Actor Cary Elwes will write a memoir about The Princess Bride, the 25 year old movie that’s probably the only movie I want to watch.

In the book, Elwes will recall behind-the-scenes memories of the making of the hit through interviews with castmembers, including Billy Crystal, Robin Wright, Carol Kane, Christopher Guest, Chris Sarandon and writer William Goldman. Director Rob Reiner is contributing the book’s foreword.

The 1987 film traces the journey of Westley (Elwes), a farm boy vying for the love of a princess after the two have been separated for five years. It features iconic performances by Mandy Patinkin as the vengeful Spaniard Inigo Montoya and Wallace Shawn as criminal “mastermind” Vizzini.

Here’s a Princess Bride oral history as well.
