I am a huge fan of literature and often try to imagine what a true film adaptation would look like. Of course film and literature are two different mediums, but it still is a fun distraction. The closest to a true literary adaptation that I've ever seen is Mario Puzo's The Godfather. The Lord of the Rings comes in a close second. I've got in my head a great opening sequence for a true literary adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera. If the 1939 The Wizard of Oz weren't so part of the public consciousness, I would love to see a series of films adapting each of the Oz books. In Doug's World, a mini-series adaption of Tarzan of the Apes has possibilities. Any other ideas or suggestions?
