    The movie rarely follows the book.It’s usually so radically different I sometimes wonder why the studios bother to pay for the rights

    The fastest way to get a failing grade. Watch the movie and report on that. The teachers always took a special delight in calling students out on this. Screenwriters thrive on creative license, particularly when adapting literature.

    At least she should watch Masterpiece Theatre. Their multipart
    adaptions are more faithful than theatrical films. Theatrical films
    seem always to leave out whatever it is that makes the book what
    it is.

    i found the film version of dr zhivago way more entertaining than the book, but maybe that’s because the book didn’t have julie christie

    The only thing “instant” about TV today is the DVR fast-forward button that can zap through the four-minute commercials.

    I remember an episode of “The Cosby Show” where Theo & Cockroach had to do a report on something from Shakespeare. They got a record, as in LP, of the play. Then Denise told them about Cliff’s notes (not the dad). Of course they did not do well.

    Is it any wonder why people are so shallow nowadays?

    I tried that with a comic book version when I was in college. That didn’t work out so well either, but at least Beowulf (the original) didn’t take too long to read and there was no middle English involved.

    I LOVED Masterpiece Theatre: back in the day when there was only 3 TV stations, 1 was fuzzy, 1 was iffy – I turned to PBS. Also loved Waiting For God.

    I can get a month of savoring adjectives out of just one Readers Digest. My husband’s done in an hour. Ahhhhh: night time.

    I remember 4 books that were just like the movies because I think they were written for the sole purpose of becoming movies: “Rosemary’s Baby;” “Platoon;’” “The Deer Hunter;” “Love Story.” There was no more depth to them than the movies.
