  1. Since the creation of film, MANY books from the renown to unknown have been adapted for the screen. With any film, the story won't always be told exactly as it is written. Some done excellency while others are not. Another reason is disagreements with the author. Then there's certain themes in the book which the producers and director chose to leave out. Here are some films which fall into these categories: *Gone with the Wind: Book version, Scarlett has more children and the rest of the content is more than what we see in the film Film version, they lowered most of what was written in the book to make it the exact film length that it is *The Shining Book version, had more to do with a addiction Film version, was more focused on parental figure's descent into insanity and a child's supernatural ability *Lolita Book version, deals with the topic of perversion Film version, deals more with the resistance of perversion and trying to do the right thing P.S. I always thought Stanley Kubrick did an excellent job with the retelling *Count of Monte Cristo Book version, another female character is in the story as a minor and there a son Film version(s), no other female character and there's not always a son *Band of Angels Book version, more serious and has more graphic content Film version, lighter tone and but still focused on the main characters and the theme of racism and bigotry *It Book version, villain is a different entity Film version(s), we see the evil entity is a clown *Prince of Tides Book version, the relationship between the main characters Film version, was more about the romance between them *1984 Book version, imaginative look at what life would be like had WWII not happened Film version(s), not one has ever been able to capture the book same quality *Colour Purple, The Book version, more of a LGBT relationship between the heroine and secondary female character Film version, Steven Spielberg didn't wanted to take the film THAT far so left that out https://www.listchallenges.com/best-books-made-into-movies https://www.imdb.com/list/ls050071819/ https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/books-made-into-movies http://www.paperbackswap.com/Books-Made-Movies/tag/8969/ Which books made into films have you notice a major change when you first saw it?
  2. I am starting to flesh out my classic film book collection. And I have been trying to track down the best books on the history of the studio era, Scott Eyman's Lion Of Hollywood has been recommended to me as the definitive book about MGM, and there are others about Warner Bro's I am considering purchasing. I was wondering if anyone here can give me some recommendations, particularly for books about Fox, as there does not seem to be many out there. Thanks

    A Society Sensation (1918) Info?

    Hello, As a Rudolph Valentino fan, I was so excited to learn that this film was still in existence and was not lost like so many of his early "pre-fame" films. However, it was not available online (I didn't see it on youtube etc.), and after months of searching, I've only been able to find it sold at TCM, Valentino: Rediscovering an Icon of Silent Film, and now that has disappeared from the website. If you have any information on where I can get this film, or preferably where I can get the set, Valentino: Rediscovering an Icon of Silent Film, I'd really love to own some of the other films in that set as well, is it still available? I'd appreciate any information you have about this set ~Natalie

    New Classic Film Blog

    Hello all! I am new to the message boards and I am excited to partake in classic film discussions of all kinds! I just started a classic film blog two weeks ago, and I am very interested in any feedback or ideas that fellow classic film lovers have. I currently have written about 9 or 10 movies. I know I need to upgrade it in terms of graphics, etc., but I will do that in time. Thanks very much! https://charsmoviereviews.wordpress.com/
  6. film 1, has a story line similar to "Night Flight" with Clark Gable but it turns out not to be the film I'm looking for. A small airline owner runs flights through treacherous conditions with a host of pilots a high faloutin girl hanging around and a lovely girl next door helper who has an obvious crush on our owner. He has a side kick retired pilot that gives him advice and a shady new pilot that has to prove himself. film 2 is about a young star who hides the fact that her mother is black to get ahead in her career with the final scene showing her finding out her mother has died and she runs to the very public funeral procession (which is a horse drawn hearse covered in flowers) and cries out for the lose of her mother. both these films are very old and I've been looking for them for ages to watch again I would be very grateful for any help cheers ps: please feel free to ask me for more info on the plot lines if needed
  7. What are some of your recommendations for biopics of real-life women? This topic is intended to be year round and refer to any era or country. It is inspired by the fact that today is International Women's Day but make no mistake, this is a thread about movie portrayals of women in all aspects of life whose lives have been captured on screen. Sometime biopics are accurate, sometimes they are influenced by the era in which they were made and what was allowed to be shown on the screen at that time. Furthermore, sometimes the autobiographies upon which they are based are biased, such as Anna L. perhaps increasing the actual influence she had on the Siamese King. Some biopics that come to mind that I recommend are: Blossoms in the Dust The Nun's Story I'll Cry Tomorrow With a Song in My Heart Love Me or Leave Me Smash Up: The Story of a Woman The King and I as well as Anna and the King

    I've created a facebook group for Summer Of Darkness, I do not have a twitter and thought a facebook group would be a nice place for some discussions on the topic. https://www.facebook.com/groups/103357930003601/

  10. There was an older movie (maybe 50s/60s?). A professor had bought an apartment in the city and was renting it out to men (a group of four?) from the suburbs to see what would happen when they did come into the city and study their behavior. His assistant ends up falling for one of the men, wives come in at the end of the movie and it's complete chaos and fun. I watched this movie on TCM ages ago (back when I still lived with my folks and had cable!). I can't for the life of me remember what it was called, can anyone remember? I know it's not a lot to go on...
