In an interview with ABC News, Cary Elwes, who played Westley in the film, shared some of his favorite personal stories of his time on the set.
This one is our favorite:
During the shoot, which Elwes said lasted for about a month-and-a-half, the cast and crew grew very close. "I can't remember a day without laughter," he said. [Director] Rob Reiner acted as the father of the group, hosting dinners for the cast and encouraging game nights and other hang outs. One indication that the group was going to jell came on the first day, Elwes said, when wrestler Andre the Giant, who played Fezzik in the movie, "let out a 16 second fart and brought production to a standstill." "It could be heard three counties away," Elwes said with a laugh. "Nobody said anything except Rob, who said 'Are you OK, Andre?' and André replied, 'I am now, boss.' He was comfortable enough to do that!"
