Trivia that mentions this person:
The Princess Bride [1987]
  • While shooting scenes on top of a high grassy slope, Cary Elwes broke his toe. André the Giant couldn't walk up those hills, which was a huge slab, so he drove a rented, small four-wheeler and threw Elwes the keys to try it. Elwes went over a rock and the rock got caught in between his toes and the pedal, crushing his toe. He couldn't delay the shoot and thus shot his scene. In the film, you can see him limping when he's running into the swamp. Costume designer [?] Phyllis Dalton made a special shoe for him.
