Need a great holiday gift or treat for yourself? Barnes and Noble Booksellers have just released The Books on Film Collection featuring six great classic movies paired with a new edition of the classic novel that it was adapted from. The highlight of the collection for me is of course director Ang Lee’s 1995 film Sense and Sensibility staring Emma Thompson (Elinor Dashwood), Kate Winslet (Marianne Dashwood) and co-staring Alan Rickman (Col Brandon), Hugh Grant (Edward Ferrars) and Greg Wise (John Willoughby). The DVD of the movie and a new edition of the book are presented in a beautifully designed box set and would make the perfect Janeite holiday gift.
Also included in the collection are such literary and movie classics as Kenneth's Branagh's 1994 film Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Gillian Armstrong’s 1994 film Little Women, Sidney Lanfield's brooding and atmospheric 1939 adaptation of The Hound of the Baskerville and Martin Scorsese’s 1993 powerfully romantic film The Age of Innocence.
For a limited time each boxed set in the collection is $13.48, or if you can’t choose just one, then buy the entire collection as a set for $53.95. Such a deal for six classic movies and novels that will supply many hours of enjoyment.
