Summary:For the past three decades, Hollywood has faithfully adapted much of
Stephen King's fiction into film. Of the many major films that have
been made, not one has lost money. Part of this may be explained in
terms of King's own popularity in American culture he has been, after
all, a best-selling writer since the late 1970s. But more interesting
is what this cinematic fascination reveals about postmodern American
culture. In the first overview of Hollywood's major cinematic
interpretations of Stephen King, Tony Magistrale examines the various
thematic, narrative, and character interconnections that highlight
the relationships among his films. Opening with a revealing interview
with Stephen King, the book takes us through chapters that explore
such popular films as Stand By Me, Misery, The Shining, The Green
Mile, and The Shawshank Redemption among others.
