An Eclectic Collection of Fiction That Inspired Film Categorized by genre, and featuring movies by master directors such as Steven Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick, Robert Altman, Frank Capra, and John Ford, as well as relative newcomers such as Chris Eyre and Christopher Nolan, Adaptations offers insight into the process of turning a short story into a screenplay, one that, when successful, doesnt take drastic liberties with the text upon which it is based, but doesnt mirror its source material too closely either. The stories and movies featured in Adaptations include: The predecessor to the beloved holiday classic A Christmas Story, "Red Ryder Nails the Hammond Kid" by Jean Shepherd Whether youre a fiction reader or a film buff, Adaptations is your behind-the-scenes look at the sometimes difficult, sometimes brilliantly successful process from the printed page to the big screen.
