Hosted by actor Peter Gallagher, this cable TV series detailed the process through which best-selling novels became high-grossing motion pictures. In addition to the requisite film clips, the series offered in-depth interviews with authors, screenwriters, actors, directors and critics. The first episode, telecast October 28, 2002, chronicled the matriculation from print to celluloid of The Silence of the Lambs. Later episodes of Page to Screen scrutinized such filmic literary adaptations as Jaws, L.A. Confidential, Get Shorty, The English Patient, Primary Colors, The Lord of the Rings, The Cider House Rules, Road to Perdition, and Dances With Wolves.
