I think the original plot is solid, but it would need extensive
adaptation, updating to this era, etc. Nothing that a good
scriptwriter could not reasonably do. By the way, I often see those
old Dorothy Hughes novels in bargain bins at used stores or at charity
stores. It pains me a bit. She was not the hottest ball of fire but
neither does she deserve this kind of neglect.
