It may not classify as HB, but I think Budd Schulberg's
"On the Waterfront" should be mentioned.

Even though the film (which I assume everyone knows of) isn't exactly "Mary Poppins", it is still more upbeat than the novel, which is *very* grim.

The same relation between grimness in novel and film also holds for Schulberg's "The Harder They Fall".
