It Came From ...The Stories and Novels Behind Classic Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction Films
Which was better -- the movie or the book? When it comes to the literary origins of 21 genre classics, this time-honored question is finally answered in a new compendium by film historians Jim Nemeth and Bob Madison: It Came From ... The Novels and Stories Behind the Classic Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction Films. Each of the book's essays provides comparisons between original source material and the resulting film for such well-known titles as THE WIZARD OF OZ, PSYCHO and PLANET OF THE APES. Faithfulness to the original, contributions of screenwriters, the challenges they face, and analysis of both versions of the famous works, all lead to an authoritative consensus for "Who wrote it better, and why?" Also provided is a comprehensive list of horror, fantasy and science fiction films based (closely or loosely) on other material, with each entry containing the author, publisher and publication date of the source
