Thursday Feature: “Let’s Talk Books” — From Book To Motion Picture
Welcome To Thursday Feature: “Let’s Talk Books”! It wasn’t until a couple hours ago, while watching my favorite movie “Airport” (1970), written by Alex Hailey, that I finally decided what this week’s topic would be. While researching and writing this post, I discovered a list of 322 movies that had their beginning as a a novel or nonfiction book. Looking back at this past month’s Academy Awards, several Oscars were awarded to movies that came from books — Still Alice, Theory of Everything, and The Imitation Game, to name only three. Now it’s your turn…
Think of a book you’ve read that became a movie.
Were you anxious to see the movie? Why/why not?
Did it follow the book?
If it didn’t, what was different? Plot? Characters?
Did the difference(s) affect your enjoyment of the movie? How?
Note: I’ll be posting my replies later in the day, as well as a link to the list I mentioned….I was surprised at some of the titles I found and maybe you will be too! 😀
Here is the link to the list:
