The Great Gatsby http://wamc.org en Rob Edelman: Great Novels, Not-So-Great Movies http://wamc.org/post/rob-edelman-great-novels-not-so-great-movies <p>Sometimes, novels that are American classics have been transformed into motion pictures that are American classics. FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, THE GRAPES OF WRATH, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, and FIELD OF DREAMS (based on Ray Kinsella’s Shoeless Joe) are a few that come to mind. Some-- ALL THE KING’S MEN, for example-- have been the source for films that deserve all the acclaim they earn and remakes that are, in a word, execrable.</p> Mon, 20 May 2013 16:27:49 +0000 Rob Edelman 65099 at http://wamc.org
