Book vs Film Adaptation: The BIG difference between the book's story and that of the film adaptation
ClassicMovies_fan_chick posted a topic in General DiscussionsSince 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?
