Quiz Description

Given the original work of literature, the author, and the year of the film's release, identify the title of the film which is based on that work of literature (the film may be a relatively literal version of the literary work, or may be "adapted" from the literary work). In each case, the title of the film will not match the original work of literature.

Assume that italics are novels (unless stated otherwise) and "titles in quotes" are short stories (again, unless stated otherwise). As a small (and obvious) hint: sometimes the author is also a character when the story was based on a true story.

For example, if I say "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad (1979), you would answer "Apocalypse Now".
