Cary Elwes: As You Wish – Inconceivable Tales From the Making of the Princess Bride

Reading progress update: I’ve read 100%. — and now I’m going to watch the movie all over again.

The nice thing about having the audio is that it is not only read by Mr. Elwes; it also features almost the entire cast, reading the comments that they contributed to his book.

The nice thing about having the print version is that it includes a section of behind-the-scene photos.  I also like the makeup of the book, which is printed on slightly thicker paper than usual; imitating the weight of medieval parchment.

Truly inconceivable that this movie took 13 years to be made, had been considered “unfilmable” for as long, and would almost have been buried by botched marketing even after it had been produced.  Thank Heaven for small mercies and the home video market.

(Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
