How Peter S. Beagle Learned to Love His Own Adaptation of "The Last Unicorn"

Not exactly high praise. Yet rather tame, considering some of the things authors have had to say about film adaptations of their work. Remember Stephen King’s choice remarks about Stanely Kubrick’s take on The Shining? J.R.R. Tolkien may have parted with the movie rights to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but he wasn’t shy in voicing his displeasure with would-be adaptors in his lifetime. And Roald Dahl was notoriously hostile to both Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Jim Henson’s film of The Witches.
