Re: Decent movie versions of classic novels

Best page-to-screen adaptation I can think of is the 1978 PBS version of Ursula LeGuin's The Lathe of Heaven. Bruce Davison is a perfect George Orr and the script/production mirrors LeGuin's writing about as well as one could want it to.

There is apparantly a later version (1990's?) that was done for A&E that I've heard nothing good about.
