Well BETH, it's just part of the sad fact that despite how many people( and in some cases misguided) think they're good, many of the movies adapted from Stephen King novels do those novels any justice.  IMHO, a couple I can name are THE SHINING( '80) and THE DEAD ZONE('83).  I've never read MISERY, so I'll take your word on that.  :)

I thought the original SALEM'S LOT TV mini-series was pretty spooky (though again it does take liberties with the book as well).

I guess it depends on how one views a movie's changes from the book it's based on, whether it's good or bad. I love THE SHINING despite Kubrick's many changes from the original book, and THE DEAD ZONE is an excellent adaptation as well even if it did leave out a lot of stuff from King's original story.

THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION is a rare exception where I actually prefer the movie to the original short story it was based on (though I did like the King's version as well). THE GREEN MILE was also a pretty solid adaptation as well.

I believe TOMAHAWK was filmed on location in South Dakota. The scenery is amazing. Rock Hudson has a supporting role, and during production, he and De Carlo became lifelong friends. She bought some horses when she was there, which she transported back to California.

There's a great scene where she races a horse at high speed across the plains. No stunt woman required. She did it all herself, in one long take.

Out of all of them, I can't get enough of 122. I avoid 130 like the plague whenever it comes on TV, however.

The rest, while I wouldn't consider them classics, I still like to catch once in a while when I'm in the mood.

Surprised you don't consider #121 a classic.

What do you dislike about #130?
