<< Beyond the obvious choice of THE MALTESE FALCON,
what are some of the most faithful adaptations of hard-boiled
novels into films? And what are some of the least faithful?
The movie Oliver Stone made from John Ridley's STRAY DOGS is
so faithful to the book, that after seeing the former, I had
to put the latter down to let it fade from my memory
somewhat, because there was absolutely no surprise for me. I
still haven't picked it back up.
