Yeah, the '66 T.V series been mentioned. I read somewhere it wasn't actually a live series, with live actors.

I think a re-do is in order.

But Jonnie:

Surely there are books you'd like to see be made into a movie, yes?

Another book I can think of is "Farmer in the sky." It's sci-fi by Heilen(I probably spelled that wrong) it's a bit dated and they'd have to work around that, but it's got a plotline I think that can really work.

A better version of "A boy and his dog" would be good and any version of "Jack of Shadows" would be even better still.

I don't usually watch the movies made from books to often, I am usually disappointed in them. They seem rushed and chopped up to me. But as far as books, I've read so many I can't even name my favorite.
I have been reading classics lately, and I am not sure whether movies have been made from them or not. I have recently read Little Women, Wuthering Heights, The Anne of Green Gables series, The Secret Garden, and now I am reading Pollyanna. All have been very good, although Wuthering Heights was very dark and a little depressing to me, although it kept my interest.
I have started Shogun, but keep changing to other books and going back so it is a slow go of it. I think a movie has been made of it (not sure) and I might like it better in this case as it is a very long book.
I enjoy books under 500 pages better than the lengthier ones. I have a short attention span I suppose.

I have to agree about Wuthering heights: did anyone in England during that age have a happy childhood???? #-o

books distract you from what is going on in the world. Books are like sleep.
