Short Story - Adaptations


Short stories have frequently been adapted for radio dramas, as on NBC Presents: Short Story (1951–52). A popular example of this is "The Hitch-Hiker", read by Orson Welles. Sometimes, short stories are adapted into television specials, such as "12:01 PM", "Nightmare at 20,000 feet", "The Lottery", and "Button, Button". Others have been made into short films, often rewritten by other people, and even as feature length films, such is the case of "Children of the Corn", "The Birds", "Brokeback Mountain", "Who Goes There?", "Duel", "A Sound of Thunder", "The Body", "Total Recall", "The Lawnmower Man", and "Hearts in Atlantis".
