[Books & Movies] ALL THE KING'S MEN

Regarding the remake of ALL THE KING'S MEN, Slate movie reviewer Dana Stevens warns:
Beware the literary adaptation—especially the Southern literary adaptation, with ceiling fans—that begins with a voice-over. Once you've started down that road, it's hard not to end up with a film as ponderous and turgid as a bookreport.
Check our Catalog for ALL THE KING'S MEN--the novel or play by Robert Penn Warren or the 1949 Academy Award winning film by Robert Rossen.

What are the best (or worst) film adaptations of books?
