Are there any novel based movies out there that stay true to the novel?


Often when I have read a great book and it becomes a movie, like so many of Stephen King's, I am disappointed in the movie and always find the book much better. Seems like not all the opinions and view can be expressed in the movie's frame time. Are there any movies out there that did great justice to the written words of a great novel?

    But not "Wizard of Oz." I can't agree with that! I was so disappointed when I saw that movie... There is no singing in the book. Dorothy is supposed to be about age ten and with short blonde hair. It is not a dream from which she wakes up.

    That is right! I studied Of Mice And Men in a novel class and saw the movie later.

    The epic 'Lonesome Dove' with Robert Duvall was screened on tv here as well. It's hard to keep to a book with long descriptive or narrative passages. You're limited to the 'physical' element of a story unless a narrator enters the 'equation'.
