The amount of work that Cary and Mandy Patinkin put in for the sword fighting scene is amazing. They practiced for months.
Also a great story about Andre the Giant passing out in the hotel lobby, drunk after drinking like four bottles of wine or something. The hotel couldn't figure out how to move him, so they put velvet ropes around him and just left him. He woke the next morning and went home.
I'm loving this book. I think I will have a new appreciation for the movie after listening.
