I just finished watching it on AMC. I have watched it a million times and never get tired of it. What a movie.

One of life's mysteries for me is how film-makers can capture a complicated story in 1 1/2 to 3 hours max. Just finished reading A Bridge Too Far, great book, figured that if I were a screenwriter I could easily distill it down into a 43-hour movie.

Only a few authors are capable screenwriters. Most of the time they are allowed to "consult" when they sell the rights which means they do nothing.

I'll bet Hemingway could have done a screenplay but Dickens would not have had the ability.
