The Films of Douglas Sirk

Tom Ryan

University Press of Mississippi

Sirk remade three films that were originally directed by John M. Stahl in the 1930s, his versions based on fictions by well-known novelists. This chapter focuses on how the various intersections and divergences between the three versions of “the same story” amount to an implicit dialogue, even a three-way debate, between a novelist and two filmmakers (and their other collaborators) about how best to tell that story.

Keywords:   Adaptation, John M. Stahl, Lloyd C. Douglas, James M. Cain, Fannie Hurst
