Short Stories Make the Best Movies- Revisited

Short stories give a great amount of focus on an interesting topic.  It is fun to see these stories come out in a feature film.  Movies based on short stories portray an image of the topic covered in the book that only furthers your imagination of the story.  It is nice to see these short stories re-lived in a movie.  They are a great read, like taking a break for a cup of coffee.  Movies based on short stories are The Body Snatcher based on the short story by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Call of Cthulhu based on the short story by H.P. Lovecraft, Children of the Corn based on the short story by Stephen King, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

The Buck is a touching short story that would make a good read.
