Overview

The first and only official companion to the iconic film. One of the most hilarious, romantic, adventurous, and best-loved movies of all time, The Princess Bride is a touchstone in the lives of generations of moviegoers. Now, for the first time, millions of fans will have the opportunity to own the first book to celebrate the magic, memories, and derring-do of the seminal film. A veritable treasure trove of images from everyone’s most-loved moments as well as never-before-seen behind-the-scenes photographs, script pages, production designs, and reminiscences from cast and crew, this giftable package is a perfect and brand-new way for fans of all ages to relive the film over and over again. The Princess Bride, written by William Goldman, is a timeless story set in the mythic land of Florin, where Princess Buttercup and her true love, Westley, must face kidnappers, vengeful swordsmen, an evil prince, a fire swamp, and rodents of unusual size. Its hilarious and exciting storyline, set within the loving framework of a grandfather reading to his grandson, made the film a box-office hit and pop culture phenomenon. The film starred Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, André the Giant, Wallace Shawn, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Billy Crystal, Fred Savage, and Peter Falk. It is best known for being an undeniably loved, oft-quoted piece of American cinematic history. Fans will find it "inconceivable" that it has been twenty-five years since Westley and Inigo Montoya first stormed the castle. This official celebration is a must-have for any of the millions of people who love the film.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A treasure trove of memorabilia pulled 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... reflections from the all-star cast....Is there a better gift book for the "Princess Bride" fan in your life? Why, that's "inconceivable!"" ~americanprofile.com

"Celebrating the film’s 25th anniversary, a beautiful and exciting look at the making of the film and memorabilia compilation for fans. The Princess Bride: A Celebration is the first companion book to the film ever created. Which in itself is astounding–a movie so popular and yet no one thought to release something like this before. "It is a collector's dream to lay his/her hands on continuity Polaroids from a film production and this book gives the reader the feel...At 192 pages this volume actually includes everything you could hope for. The result is what any fan of any film would love to have" ~Borg.com

"A Celebration is kind of like a 192-page look-through a Princess Bride shoebox of stuff, like the creators and actors collectively threw bits and pieces from the experience and the process in for safekeeping and reminiscing down the road. ...after getting to the end, I found that I had enjoyed the memories it had sparked, and what I really wanted to do was go sit down with it and flip through again while watching the movie for the bajillionth time. Which is really the best way to celebrate an amazing movie, after all." ~wired.com

"...a super-smart, super-comprehensive collection of creative artifacts related to a beloved film....what’s most astounding here is how the book has been compiled to tell the proverbial behind-the-scenes story of making the film without any unifying main text: to turn the pages of this book...is to both relive the film and to learn, effortlessly, about how it was crafted. Highly recommended…" ~School Library Journal
