Wizard of Oz?? Well that's easy. Ringo would be the lion, Päul the Tin Man, George the Scarecrow and John the Wizard. Martha would be Toto and I'd be Dorothy!! a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

Edit : Imagine Casablanca…. Ringo would be the perfect Rick with his voice saying "From all the gin joints in the world", John as Ilsa (in very Monty Python style), Paul would be Victor and George in a double role as Sam and Captain Renault.

 

John as Ilsa : "Play it again Sam, for all time's sake"

George as Sam : "Again? Can we play one of my songs?"

John : "Play it *again* Sam"

 

And Paul directing the Marseillaise… man I can totally see it. And Paul and John can play a marriage couple with issues.

awwww, I love the idea of Ringo as the lion. :)

Your Casablanca scene made me burst out laughing. Luckily, I'm home, and not at work, where I never post on this. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Love this! But I'd cast it differently:
 
John Lennon - Rick 
Paul McCartney (in drag) - Ilsa  
George Harrison - Laszlo  
Ringo Starr - Renault
Billy Preston - Sam  
Allen Klein - Signor Ferrari   
Phil Spector - Ugarte 
Sgt. Norman Pilcher - Major Strasse    

Ringo: (blows whistle) Everybody is to leave at once. This recording studio is closed until further notice.  
John: What? On what grounds?  
Ringo: I'm shocked - shocked! - to find that there is marijuana being smoked here!  
Mal Evans: Here, I rolled it just the way you like it, Captain.  
Ringo: Oh, thank you very much! (accepts joint) Everyone out immediately. (inhales sharply)

I actually was given a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It kind of turned my stomach, to be honest, but I wouldn't mind checking out the original.


You mean the original book? It's fantastic. Jane Austen is not only romantic stories, she describes with great irony the society of her time. I got into Jane Austen thanks to Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility adaptation, I got some books in Spanish and I loved them. Actually when I went to Dallas a few years ago, my shopping list included all the Jane Austen books I could get ahold of.

 

But if you mean a movie version, I strongly recommend you the 1995 miniseries. Colin Firth is just dashing as Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Ehle is the perfect Lizzy. My other Jane Austen favorite adaptation is Persuasion with Amanda Root and the awesome Ciaran Hinds. The new adaptations are so-so.

I don't mind when classics are set in modern times : Clueless is a fantastic adaptation of Emma. 10 Things I hate about you is onf of the funniest Taming of the Shrew I've seen. But when it comes to books, I don't like messing up with the original story. I mean, if you want to write a zombie story in the Regency period, why don't you write your original story?

Sorry. This just makes me… I dunno. Like this. blue-meanie

I can identify I guess 95% of the movies. I don't know if feel like this a-hard-days-night-john-1 or like a-hard-days-night-paul-3
