Question: How many works of fiction have you seen BOTH the film/TV drama and read the original book, play or comic story?
Answer: I got going on these, and even sneaked a peek at a few other entries to jog my memory, but as I went along I started second-guessing myself: Did I really see that, or did I just imagine it? Did I really read it? Who am I?
So, here you have it: A list of the books/plays I've read and then seen the adaptation, plus a couple that I did the other way around.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Father of the Bride
Fiddler on the Roof
Harry Potter 1-4
Hello, Dolly! (Read (memorized, more like) the musical and The Matchmaker, the original play the musical is based on)
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Les Miserables (I only made it halfway through the book, though)
Little House on the Prairie
Little Women (multiple versions, again)
Oliver! (This would be the musical version)
Peanuts (read the cartoons, watch the specials)
Pride and Prejudice
Ramona (the miniseries from the '80s)
Romeo & Juliet
The Colour of Magic
The Homecoming/The Waltons (The Homecoming was the story-turned-play-turned-movie (those last two steps may have been the other way around) that became The Waltons. The original pilot had all the same actors for the children but different ones for the parents & Grandpa Walton.)
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (about 4 versions now!)
The Little Princess
The Lord of the Rings
The Man Who Came to Dinner
The Night of the Twisters
The Princess Bride
The Princess Diaries
The Rats of NIMH
The Secret Garden
The Sound of Music
The Trouble with Angels
What's a good one that you've read/seen that I left off?
