HOLLYWOOD'S STEPHEN KING - FIRST. NY: Palgrave MacMillan, 2003. First Edition. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Trade Paperback. As New / As New. 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. Illustrated with an Index. 233 pp.
