I saw last week where someone on Facebook was doing a Seven Challenge. Name, and show your favorite books & favorite movies, that stick with you, year after year. My first is always TKAM. That's To Kill a Mockingbird. Written probably by Harper Lee, Alabaman who lived mostly in seclusion. Some people think that her dear friend Truman Capote wrote it & also represented Boo Radley in the story. Gregory Peck played Atticus in the movie. My second is the movie The Princess Bride. Everyone should see it! The book that goes with it is As You Wish: nconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride Cary Elwes (Author, Narrator), Joe Layden (Author), Rob Reiner (foreword) (Author), From actor Cary Elwes, who played the iconic role of Westley in The Princess Bride, comes a first-person account and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cult classic film filled with never-before-told stories and interviews with costars Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Mandy Patinkin, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner. The Princess Bride has been a family favorite for close to three decades. Ranked by the American Film Institute as one of the top 100 Greatest Love Stories and by the Writers Guild of America as one of the top 100 screenplays of all time, The Princess Bride will continue to resonate with audiences for years to come. Cary Elwes was inspired to share his memories and give fans an unprecedented look into the creation of the film while participating in the twenty-fifth anniversary cast reunion. In As You Wish he has created an enchanting experience; in addition to interviews with his fellow cast mates, there are plenty of set secrets and backstage stories. With a foreword by Rob Reiner, As You Wish is a must-have for all fans of this beloved film. The full list of narrators includes: Cary Elwes, Christopher Guest, Carol Kane, Norman Lear, Rob Reiner, Chris Sarandon, Andy Scheinman, Wallace Shawn, Robin Wright, and Billy Crystal. I'll try to do more later & stop now, here with 2.
