Friday Feature: “Let’s Talk Books” — From Book To Motion Picture

Welcome To Friday 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:
