Number 9 is an interesting entry. I was just recommending Sally Potter’s film to someone earlier today.

Rather a lot of LoTR creatures. And some bestiality.

68. Peter Pan (Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up)

!!!!!

George Smiley at 71, but surprisingly no sign of Bill Haydon.

Quite a few of them decided by who played them in film adaptations rather than how they were written, I suspect.

Frankenstein’s Monster

Nothing like a bit of re-energised corpse sexy time.

And wtf's Aslan doing on there?

Casaubon?? Really?

Shadrack22 - 14 Jul 2021 20:00:10 (#10 of 20)

I’d have thought Casaubon would level pegging with Obadiah Slope.

Romeo Montague seems an inappropriate selection somehow.

Where are the jaded cynical world weary Philip Marlowe types?

popstar7 - 14 Jul 2021 20:12:28 (#13 of 20)

At home, feeding the cat, pouring another slug of rye and wondering why that heiress dame ripped out their heart, tore it into a thousand pieces and stomped it into the dirt.

He had a sex a few times "She made that special noise women make". In the film he almost certainly got it on with Dorothy Malone in the bookshop.

"She made that special noise women make"

BLEUERGH!

darkhorse - 14 Jul 2021 20:23:56 (#16 of 20)

Zzzzzzzzz…

airynothing - 14 Jul 2021 20:25:03 (#17 of 20)

"...that special noise women make"

"Fuck off, Marlowe!"

Some of us can relate.

Shadrack22 - 14 Jul 2021 21:33:30 (#19 of 20)

Surprised Hazel from Watership Down isn’t on the list.

#6 - The monster is supposed to be a model of physical perfection, isn't he? That's why he's made up of bits and pieces: Frankenstein tries to find the best example of every part for his creature.
