Foreward by Rob Reiner

Fans of the beloved 1987 movie, director Rob Reiner’s fun, family-friendly twist on a storybook tale of pirates, a princess, and her adventure-filled path to reunite with her true love, will delight in this 25th anniversary companion book. A treasure trove of memorabilia culled from the movie’s archives, it includes reproductions of hundreds of candid Polaroids from the film’s production, photos of props and costumes used by the actors, sketches that later became Princess Buttercup’s farm, Vizzini’s ship, the Pit of Despair and other sets, and reflections from the all-star cast, which included Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Guest, Billy Crystal, André the Giant and Fred Savage. Is there a better gift book for the “Princess Bride” fan in your life? Why, that’s “inconceivable!”
