Ten random things: March 18

Ten books made into films by directors who have been nominated for an Academy Award and lost five times:

  1. Robert Bloch, Psycho
  2. Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence
  3. Niven Busch, Duel in the Sun
  4. Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
  5. Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye
  6. Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead
  7. Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca
  8. Richard Hooker, MASH
  9. Nick Pileggi, Wiseguy
  10. Marjorie Rawlings, The Yearling

The directors in question, of course, are Robert Altman (who directed numbers 5 and 8), Clarence Brown (4 and 10), Alfred Hitchcock (1 and 7), Martin Scorsese (2 and 9), and King Vidor (3 and 6).
