The Tale Behind the ‘Greatest Love Story’ Ever Told is Coming to Print

Time announced it in 2013 as “the best news you’ll read all day.” It still is.

The tale behind the “greatest love story” ever told, of a rhyming giant kind and fencing Spaniard bold, of Westley, handsome farm boy, and Buttercup, a beauty coy — is coming to print. Our Westley, Cary Elwes, will lead a romp to “have fun stormin’ da castle” in his memoir As You Wish (October 14; Touchstone) on the making of the well-loved hit film, “The Princess Bride.”

The iconic swashbuckling rom-com introduced Robin Wright (wait, sweet Buttercup turned into Claire Underwood?), and starred Billy Crystal, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, (I’m not a witch, I’m your wife!”) Carol Kane, Christopher Guest, Chris Sarandon, Peter Falk, and a young Fred Savage. It is applauded as one of the Writers Guild of America’s “101 Greatest Screenplays” and the American Film Institute’s “100 Greatest Love Stories.”

Elwes told the Hollywood Reporter that he was inspired to share “inconceivable” behind-the-scenes stories of making the hit during a cast reunion celebrating the film’s 25th anniversary at the 2012 New York Film Festival. Read more
