as you wish

Fans of The Princess Bride, which means pretty much everyone, will love the new book from Cary Elwes (Westley), who takes us behind the scenes for the inside story of the making of the film, from his nervous audition (his imitation of Fat Albert saved the day) to the most dedicated fans (one had “As you wish”tattooed on her neck and ask him to sign his name below it so she could get that tattooed as well).  As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride has interviews with screenwriter William Goldman, director Rob Reiner, and the other members of the cast, who share their favorite memories of the magical moments behind and in front of the camera.  You can follow Elwes on Twitter at @cary_elwes or keep up with him on WhoSay.
