which do u think has been the best interpretation of a book on celluloid of Television...?

I think on Celluloid , it is Gone With The Wind and The Godfather Trilogy (I like 1 and 2 only in this though)
and on Television..No second thoughts here...Adventures of Sherlock Holmes starring Jeremy Brett as the legendary sleuth...

Wow, there has been so many adaptions!! Wink ...can't remember all off them!! Ouch LOL Wink ..

Though when I was in school, Matilda by Roald Dhal was adapted into a movie!!!...And all i can say that it was a treat to watch!! Embarrassed Big smile ...

Harry Potter Rulz, so that will be in my list as well!! Embarrassed LOL Wink ....

Something more mature, Ermm Ermm would be the BBC adaption of Janes Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Clap Clap Embarrassed we had to study the novel at school as well, so I remember that clearly!! Embarrassed Big smile ...

Basically all the BBC'c adaptions off all off Jane Austen's novels Clap Clap was a pleasure to watch!! Wink Big smile

Those are the ones I can think off now! Though i know there are many more! Big smile Embarrassed

^^Oh yes The BBC versions of Jane Austen novels are real good...I have seen PnP...it was quite a nice interpretation of the nice reading experience...(in fact I enjoyed it more bcoz the novel does tend to bcum languid at times na?!) Wink But all in all, the movie like the buk has that one particular quality which gives this classic a high..namely the fact that u will read and smile in ur highs or lows!Smile
