50 Greatest Film Adaptations
- Different Seasons (one story anyway: “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption”) by Stephen King
- Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? (filmed as Blade Runner) by Philip K Dick
- The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
- 1984 by George Orwell
- Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
- Day Of The Triffids by John Wyndham
- Watership Down by Richard Adams
- Charlie And The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
- Sin City by Frank Miller
There’s no mention of which adaptation of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory qualified. As the accompanying article 50 best book-inspired films says, a notable absentee from the list is J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books.
[via Cynical-C whose comments also cite The Wizard of Oz and Lord of the Rings as notable omissions.]
