The book is pretty good, too.

Lots of cool "facts" behind the development and filming of the movie in the edition I bought/read.

They decided they wanted Andre to play the giant. He was in Europe on a wrestling tour and they flew over to talk to him. They gave him a copy of the script and asked him to read it and see if he was interested. The next time they visited him to see what he thought he'd already memorized his lines from the movie and was tickled to death to accept the part.

During the filming whenever Andre was not in a scene they said you could find him by going to the sounds of kids laughing. Many in the production crew brought their kids with them to film the movie. If Andre wasn't in front of the camera he was off to the side somewhere with a bunch of kids climbing all over him as they wrestled with him.

Stories about other things that happened before and during the filming but those two stuck with me.
