I agree. The movie is really good but the book is in an entirely different universe. Is Puzo's " The Godfather" not as good as, if not better than its movie?. The story is the writer's to tell, but the the director's to interpret. The burden to succeed is greater for the director. But then there are the exceptions where a movie director succeeds in leaping into that "other wordly" experience. Curtiz was able to do so but a lot of the story had to be dropped and reconfigured for film.

Unexpectedly original in a unique way that cannot justify not watching the film.

The rare case where the film is much better than the book.
