The Scribbler Writes Again.📝


ScribblerThursday 2nd March 2017.

Since Xmas I have decided to read some classic books. My last post about 39 Steps was number one, some might say it is not a classic. My second was ‘To Kill a Mockingbird”. However I have now watched a film of this book even though I could only find the one.

I was surprised to see that the film, starring Gregory Peck, followed pretty close to the book. ,,however there were a few minor changes to the book. The ones that were noticeable were parts of the story being left out. This did not affect the story-line. Where the book, like most books, write descriptions of people and their expressions or the environment. Some try to put the reader into a place or situation this film uses the visual qualities and camera work and techniques of film. If you haven’t read the book or seen the film I strongly advise that you do, I am sure you will enjoy it. I say to you now ‘Good Viewing or Reading or Both’.

  1. I’m presently reading The 39 Steps on your recommendation. It’s a similar style of writing to A Month in the Country though they were written decades apart. I read To Kill a Mockingbird when I was a student and couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed reading your reviews.

    • I am pleased to hear it and I hope you are enjoying the story. I also found ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ hard to put down until I finished it. Thank you for your kind words on my brief reviews and opinions.

  2. Love that book and the movie but haven’t seen it in years and years. Of course, I also like Gregory Peck. Sigh.

  3. I think I might have seen the film of The 39 Steps as a young child, but I’m ashamed to say I haven’t read either!

    • There are several films all good. But for different reasons. I do recommend a read though. Thank you and welcome.👦

  4. Funny how some things pass you by, isn’t it? I’ve always meant to read To Kill a Mocking Bird but it has eluded me. I shall seek it out, on your recommendation. 🙂 Happy weekend, Gerry! Pouring here. Can only get better!

  5. A good book, and the filmmakers did not ‘Hollywoodise’ it to the extent they so often do. I was totally fed up with the film version of Lorna Doone, for example.
