Books In Film: The Anderson Tapes

Book adaptations are still one of the biggest sources of screenplay adaptations, so much that the Oscars have a special category for it. But, when's the last time that the book got billing above the star?

The Anderson Tapes appears to still be in print, at least according to Amazon, but there doesn't seem to be much interest in it; the book has three stars from Amazon reviewers, and they don't even have a picture of the cover up. The film, however, has a brand new DVD edition out just a couple months ago. In 1971, the book drove people to the theater; in 2008, it's Sean Connery.
