Cary Elwes, better known to The Princess Bride fans as Westley, shares his experiences filming the cult classic, The Princess Bride. He shares behind the scenes stories and quotes and comments from other actors as well as directors and stuntmen. Much more of a personal story than a technical making of the movie tale. I had forgotten that The Princess Bride was made without any kind of green screen or CGI affects. The story holds up well and carries you along perhaps in part because of the lack of modern special affects.
Jeffrey Brown’s second book. Here he imagines the challenges Darth Vader would have faced raising a girl while still a Sith Lord. Parents of girls will recognize some of these scenarios as Leia moves from sweet little girl having a tea party to rebellious teen. I think teens will enjoy the humor in this book too. Small amount of adult humor in this book but it is suggestive rather than blatant so it would go over most younger kids heads. As an adult Star Wars fan, I thought this book was funnier than Darth Vader and Son. I recognized more lines straight out of the movies and more situations slightly changed. A fun, quick read with fun illustrations.
