Here are some of the stimulating - and occasionally surprising - answers to that question. This book is a follow-up to The Classic American Novel and the Movies, which ended in 1929, but it can be read on its own. [This book] covers novels and films from the 1930s to the 1970s, from Erskine Caldwell's Tobacco Road to James Dickey's Deliverance. In between, many film translations of notable novels are scrutinized - works by such authors as Faulkner, Hemingway, Steinbeck, McCullers, Nabokov, Updike, Kesey, and Vonnegut [...] Style, characterisation, theme, and ideology come under review. And we get behind-the-scenes insights into the actual filming of some celebrated novels. Of special value to scholars and students of film: extended filmographies by both author and film title of adaptations of American novels published between 1930 and 1975. In addition, there is a bibliography covering the same period, plus complete rental information on the films themselves." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Filmography: p. 349-428; Bibliography: p. 429-443; Sequel/companion to The Classic American Novel and the Movies, also in the Collection ISBN: 0804426821 : $14.50. 0804466491 pbk. : $6.95 LON: 78004373; 1250638 More info

His rambunctious filmography remains an artistic force on par with Hollywood's greatest comic directors: Chaplin, Lubitsch, Sturges, and Wilder. Like Wilder, Edward's propensity for hilarity is double-helixed with pain, and in films like Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Pink Panther, and even days of Wine and Roses, we can hear him off-screen, laughing in the dark. And yet, despite those enormous successes, he was at one time considered a Hollywood villain. After his marriage to Julie Andrews, Edwards's Darling Lili nearly sunk both of them and brought Paramount Pictures to its knees. Almost overnight, Blake became an industry pariah, which ironically fortified his sense of satire, and allowed him to simultaneously fight the Hollywood tide as he rode it. Employing keen visual analysis, meticulous research, and troves of interviews and production files, Sam Wasson delivers the first complete account of one of the maddest figures Hollywood has ever known." - BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes filmography.; Includes bibliographical references and index.
