"One banana, two banana, three banana, four...."

Ok, I didn’t see that coming:

 ;D
You mean, you can get nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay even if only parts of the movie are adapted? And if the adapted parts are separate adaptations? Yeah, well, I'm sure the rules are just vague enough that people can get away with whatever.

That article sure had some good links, though:
https://americanliterature.com/author/stewart-edward-white/short-story/the-girl-who-got-rattled
http://www.online-literature.com/london/49/

I appreciate being able to read the originals.

Yes I read the opening paragraph of The Girl Who Got Rattled and I liked it a lot.

I went through "All Gold Canyon" this morning and was impressed by how closely the Coens stuck to London's telling. One obvious addition was the bit where the prospector goes up into the tree and steals the owl eggs. I think that was an addition worth making. The other change was swapping out the obscure song the guy sings for the too-well-known "Mother McCree." OK, maybe they needed to change the song, but they should have gone with something less obvious. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the adaptation, and I say again it's much easier to grasp the mechanics of prospecting visually rather than having to read about it.

Exactly, its why I love that scene in The Sand Pebbles where Steve McQueen is explaining how the steam engine works to Po-han.
