I'm new to the group and was wondering: If this is already a thread, I'm really sorry for reposting. If not, I'd be happy to make a list of all the films on the list that are based on books, comics and short stories. I think it could be fun to watch the films and read the books to compare.
Feb 22,7: I'm not much for watching movies anymore, I prefer to read. I did see the new "True Grit" recently and really enjoyed it.

Feb 22,9: It appears that they have them listed by oldest to newest movie. To me a new movie is a movie from the 90's, which probably gives you an idea on my movie watching. I will comment that as a Christian I do limit myself on what I watch just because many newer movies have so much bad in them which is too bad, because there are a lot of good movies that have come out recently that I would like to watch but probably won't because of the above reasons.
That being said, I do like older movies especially from the 40ss and noticed many on this list that I have watched. I actually collect books with the corresponding movie titlewhich to me is an interesting collection. I will list some that I have watched in my next post. Again, nice topic, AvocadoPenguin.
Great movie that makes you think about the evil of war, even while war is sometimes needed. Certainly a 5-star out of five movie to me. I think I was suppose to read this when I was in high school, but apparently shame on me I didn't because I don't remember reading it.
Cyrano de Bergerac (1990 film)
Dracula was another movie that I actually watched rather recently that I thought was a good movie. Apart from the evil involved with Dracula himselfthis movie had great special effects for a horror movie from the early 30s.
I would rate this movie probably a 4. I actually did read this book before in the Great Illustrated Classic series if you guys are familiar with that. It is a children's series of classics with white covers. I would also place Frankenstein in the same category as Dracula.
I also read this book from the same mentioned series of books. And of course, King Kong, a enduring classic the original- never have seen the more recent rendition.
Great special effects for its time period.
Would probably rate it a 4 or 5-star. Never read the book. And the last one I will mention for tonight is "Triumph of the Will. While I have never been intrigued with silent films, this one was pretty good when you understand the time period and the evil that was this movement. I am not sure if there is a corresponding book- I would guess not, but who knows. Is this what every one else was going to do with this thread or am I going way over board?
Feb 23,4: I definitely recommend All Quiet on the Western Front if you get a chance to read it- it's the best book I've read in a while. I'm working on a list of all the adaptations on the list with LT links to the books.
Hopefully that should be up soon. Feb 23,1: The first movie that I recall watching in its entirety is the original "King Kong" of I have not watched either of the remakes I think there are two and have no interest in doing so. Somethings are better left alone. I've not read the book. I do recall fond memories of it, however. Again, I've not read the book, if there is one. I believe the young lady in his life was played by Olivia DeHaviland. Some of the scenes made me laugh out loud.
I'm not sure if there are corresponding books or stories. I own it on DVD. Is it a book as well? If not, shame on you! I've read both of those books, and would highly recommend reading them over watching the movies, even though I enjoyed the movies. There's a whole series of "Oz" books that are worth a try. The latter movie was remade into a musical, "High Society" which is a guilty pleasure of mine.
Again, I'm not sure if there is a corresponding book for either of these. I've watched and read "The Grapes of Wrath".
I liked the movie better. Watched and enjoyed "Citizen Kane", unsure about a book. I watched "The Maltese Falcon" once, and read the story, once. Neither one impressed me, much. I believe I have watched "Sergeant York", but am not totally sure.
If there is a book associated with it, I've not read it. I love the book How Green Was My Valleythe movie, and the television adaption of about 25 years ago. Get out the hankies for "Casablanca", a must watch. I've seen "Yankee Doodle Dandy", but don't recall much, nor a book. I have read the book, but would rather watch the movie.
I love the movie "Laura" and would gladly read any book about that story! I have read and watched "The Big Sleep". I like the movie a bit better, but the book really gets into much more detail about the mystery. Either or both are good! Read the book of Great Expectationsnot seen the movie. Seen "It's a Wonderful Life", not read a book.
That gets me up to about Wait a minute, where's "Miracle on 34th Street"? That should be in this list Thank you for your comments. I do plan on reading it, unfortunately, there are so many books that fit into that category.
Feb 23,9: There are several movies that you mentioned that I will comment on- there are many classics from this time period. Unlike many, I almost have to make myself watch a movie, however, I love to read. I believe I would usually read the book than watch the corresponding movie, but I guess that is the reason why I like LT- I love in a generic sense, of course books and the written word.
Feb 24, There are some really cool films in there that I never would have chosen on my own. I can't say I will ever get to them all but it is definitely filing in some large gaps. Welcome to the thread, bucketyell. You are far ahead of me- I would say that I have watched maybe or so of the almost Feb 24,9: The next movie that I have seen falls at The 39 Steps. This was a very good Hitchcock thriller from the early thirties.
As with most of Hitchcock's films- this was a great mystery. I would rate it probably a 4. I actually watched this movie about a month ago. I have been slowly going through my movies in alphabetical order and this one was among those I watched recently. Great movie; Flynn and DeHaviland played their roles very well. I would rate this movie as probably a 4. Of course we know that this movie was based on the great classic by Howard Pyle; unfortunately, I haven't read it but I am sure I will at some point.
Angels with Dirty Faces was a good movie; probably a 4. If I remember correctly, James Cagney played the role of a priest who was trying to keep the youth in his area out of trouble, but Humphrey Bogart played a gangster who was influencing these young men in the wrong direction. In the movie, they were former buddies who had went down different paths. I believe one of the most memorable scenes in the movie was toward the end when Bogart was on trial for murder.
He was about to be sentenced to the death penalty; Cagney asks him to show remorse and fear even though he had none as to possibly cause these youth to go in a different path. Bogart hesitates and doesn't want to show something that he doesn't feel; in the end, he goes along with Bogart's request. It was his last effort to do something good, rather than leave the world without remorse.
Stagecoach was one of John Wayne's early westerns; while I wasn't crazy about his earlier stuff, this particular movie was very good probably a 4. In my opinion, John Wayne wasn't a great actor, but he had a certain mantra about him that alluded him no matter what movie he played in especially his mid-movies.
I have watched probably around 10 movies with John Wayne in them and would rate most all of them a star. This particular one was one of those early greats. I will give two more since they are next to each other. The first was, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington; there weren't many movies if any that Jimmy Stewart starred in that I didn't like.
Cyrano escapes over enemy lines each morning to deliver a love letter written by Cyrano himself but signed with Christian's name, sent to Roxane. Christian, at this time, is completely unaware of Cyrano's doings on his behalf.
The love letters Cyrano writes eventually draw Roxane out from the city of Paris to the war front.
She had come to visit Christian, the supposed romantic poet. Apparently, she admitted that she would rather love an ugly, but great poet, than a handsome, dimwitted fellow. Christian, realising his mistake, tries to find out whether Roxane loves him or Cyrano, and asks Cyrano to find out. However, during the battle that follows Roxane's visit, Christian is wounded and dies in battle. As he lies dying, Cyrano tells him that he asked Roxane and it was Christian she loved, but he actually has done no such thing.
Cyrano fights off the attackers and the French win. Cyrano keeps his love for Roxane a secret for fourteen years, during which time he becomes unpopular because of his writings satirising the nobility.Jessica (제시카) - 그대라는 한 사람 (That One Person, You) [Dating Agency; Cyrano OST]
Roxane, grief-stricken, enters a convent. For fourteen years, Cyrano faithfully visits Roxane at her convent every week, never late until a fateful attempt on his life leaves him mortally injured. He is not wounded by a sword, but instead suffers a serious head injury when struck by a heavy wooden beam.
One evening, against doctor's orders, Cyrano visits Roxane at the convent. Although he faints while telling her the court news, he dismisses it as the effect of his wound at Arras. When she mentions Christian's last letter, he asks to read it, but after she gives it to him, he instead is forced to recite it from memory, as it is now too dark for him to be able to read it.
