I didn't read the book till long after I saw the movie many many times. Heck, I can still sing the songs by heart! Once I read the book I realized how much more involved it was, but I still have fond memories of that movie.Worst book-to-film? Disney's Jungle Book. I was outraged, when, as a child, I saw what had been done to my favorite Kipling, turning a thoughtful coming-of-age story into a childish joke, and even changing one of the main good guys (Kaa, the python) into a bad guy!
Worst Disney is what they did to the Hunchback of Notre Dame. A close second is Anastasia, but that wasn't based on a book. Just history, supposedly.
I loved the BBC production of P&P with Colin Firth
Do plays count? I loved the films The Good Husband and Importance of Being Earnest, both Wilde plays we did in HS. I was thrilled by how well the story was captured and made modern at the same time
Far Pavillions the movie was a decent adaptation of the book tho it left much out. Kim was also very well done
Which version of Christmas Carol is everyone's fav? I am partial to Alistair Sims
