Hemingway on film
Date: 06/27/99 00:01
All but two of Hemingway's novels have been made into movies since the 1930s, some of them more than once. A version of one of the exceptions, The Garden of Eden, is in production. Director John Huston wrote a screenplay for the other, Across the River and Into the Trees, but it was never made.
Some of Hemingway's short stories also have been transformed to the screen. The early version of "The Killers," in which Burt Lancaster made his screen debut, was Hemingway's favorite adaptation. (The later version starred Ronald Reagan in his last movie role.)
In recent years Hemingway has been a character in movies such as "The Moderns" (1988) and "In Love and War" (1996).
