52 Literary Gems That Inspired Our Favorite Films
"Within these pages, Turner Classic Movies offers an endlessly fascinating look at 52 beloved screen adaptations and the great reads that inspired them. Some films, like Clueless--Amy Heckerling's interpretation of Jane Austen's Emma--diverge wildly from the original source material, while others, like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, shift the point of view to craft a different experience within the same story. Author Kristen Lopez explores just what makes these works classics of both the page and screen, and why each made for an exceptional adaptation--whether faithful to the book or exemplifying cinematic creative license. Other featured works include: Children of Men - The Color Purple - Crazy Rich Asians - Dr. No - Dune - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes - Kiss Me Deadly - The Last Picture Show - Little Women - Passing - The Princess Bride - The Shining - The Thin Man - True Grit - Valley of the Dolls - The Virgin Suicides - Wuthering Heights"--Publisher marketing.
