Book to Screen Adaptations Book to Film lijst

To try and make an EXTREMELY comprehensive list, I call on all "Book to Screen Adaptations" Fans to list as many book-to-screen adaptations that they can recall.

For simplicity sake, just list the book title, author, movie title and year the movie was made (if you know it).

Thanks to all who contribute!

For the sake of this spot, I will exclude comic book adaptations from this list.

L.A. Confidential
Book by James Ellroy
Film directed by Curtis Hanson (1997)

Eaters of the Dead
Book by Michael Crichton
Film (The 13th Warrior) directed by John McTiernan (1999)

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

(in addition to what iluvjesse posted, above:)
Film directed by Otis Turner (1910)

Additional inferior versions too numerous to list here (on average, at least two adaptations of this book are made every decade)

Howl's Moving Castle
Book by Diana Wynne Jones
Film by Hayao Miyazaki (2004)

The Sword in the Stone
Novel by T.H. White
Film directed by Wolfgang Reitherman (1963)

The Maltese Falcon
Novel by Dashiell Hammett
Film directed by Roy Del Ruth (1931)
Film directed by John Huston (1941)

Novel by Felix Salten
Film directed by David Hand (1942)

The Thin Man
Novel by Dashiell Hammett
Film directed by W.S. Van Dyke (1934)

I'll come back to this. Our list in this forum thread is going to end up being very, very long, of course, particularly if we start to include classics of English literature (any Shakespeare, any Stevenson, and the like), as any of those are likely to have a dozen or more film versions.
