Re: Decent movie versions of classic novels

Gulliver-the 1930s (?) cartoon is wonderful, if a little Disney-ish.

George C Scott did a unique take on Holmes-it isn't faithful at all but a splendid movie.
I guess Basil Rathbone will always be Holmes to me...despite straying from who Holmes really was.

Really, one of Hollywood's biggest flaws is its inability to leave well enough alone.
There just aren't that many good adaptations of classics out there. I do agree with the Michael York Musketeers movie. Lots of fun.

Peter Pan-how come Armageddon keeps springing to mind?
