Cary Elwes Reveals a Behind-the-Scenes Look at The Princess Bride

Twenty-seven years after The Princess Bride hit theaters, barely made a dent, then slowly achieved cult-hit status, star Cary Elwes has written a book about the famous film. As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of The Princess Bride will hit shelves this week, and fans should be pleased with the behind-the-scenes stories from the set. Elwes did an interview with NPR about the book, in which he revealed some tidbits about his experience. Here's the exact moment he realized the movie was a success.

"I was in a restaurant in New York and I was ordering a hamburger. The waitress said, 'How do you want that done?' And I said, 'Medium rare.' And she said, 'As you wish.' And I looked up at her and I went, 'What did you just say?!' And she winked and walked off. And I thought, 'Oh!' And so it was a wonderful, delightful rebirth, if you will."

Whoever that waitress is, I'd like to be friends with her. What are you hoping to hear about in the book?
