I'll skip the very long string of messages and recommend, from fond memory:

*The Night of the Hunter - Laughton based on Davis Grubb

*Rear Window - Hitchcock based on Cornell Woolrich

*Shoot the Pianist - Truffaut based on David Goodis

*The Gambler - Reisz based on Dostoyevski (via Toback)

*The Third Man - Reed based on Graham Greene

*Strangers on a Train - Hitchcock based on Patricia Highsmith

*Blow-Up - Antonioni based on Julio Cortạr

*The Servant - Losey based on Robin Maugham (via Pinter)

*The Killing - Kubrick based on Lionel White

*The Asphalt Jungle - Huston based on W.R. Burnett

*Double Indemnity - Wilder based on James Cain

OK, enough of this.
