Leonard, 1931); THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY? (US, Sydney Pollack, 1969); TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE, THE (US, John Huston, 1948) Summary: "This book retrieves the lost literary treasures that inspired eight popular films. Prompted by the widespread success of these films, Gabriel Miller here re-evaluates the careers of the eight neglected novelists whose works inspired eight different directors - among them Sidney Lumet, Stanley Kubrick, John Huston, and Sidney Pollack. Each chapter offers a detailed interpretation of a particular film, its literary source, and the overall career of the novelist [...] Some of these interesting novels have never been dealt with at all; others have only recently attracted critical attention. The films, too, benefit from extended reassessment. Despite the fact that the movies were successful, moreso than the novels, they have attracted little in the way of useful analysis. Taken together, the double examination of the novel and film raises some important questions about the nature and problems of cinematic adaptation." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 199-203; Filmography: p. 196-198; Typo in the table of contents gives 'The Gangster' release date as 1957, it is actually 1947 ISBN: 0804426228 : $9.95 LON: 79048071; 1682173 More info
