Most of those are pretty obvious and the first three you mention are already in the works (and Woolrich was covered in "Rear Window" but I have several more of his films allegedly en route). With the others, it becomes a matter of lining up the books with the films and in some cases that gets dicey. For example, I'd rather do Lusty Men than They Shoot Horses because I have to actually watch these films. As for Charles Williams, is a coin flip of Don Johnson or Truffaut? I'll check into the availability of the others. And thanks for the list.
