Interesting picks ...

... a list of Movies better than the books that spawned them. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I don't think The Birds is one of Hitchcock's better films, actually, and I didn't much like The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! (the film; I never read Benchley's book). I didn't like Carrie, either.

  1. Frank, how about "The Natural" ? The film turned Bernard Malamud's novel upside-down and inside-out ..... yet I've met several people over the years who like the film's "Happy ending" so much better
