Bizarre adaptation
22 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching episodes is a supreme act of willing suspension of disbelief for a fan of author William Faulkner. Essentially all that remains of Faulkner's original creation is the Southern setting and a few character names. Given how little the television drama draws on the original, and how little drawing power Faulkner had at the time one wonders why producers went to the trouble and expense of getting the rights to Faulkner's name, when it would have been so easy to develop a series with the same characters and character relationships without the Faulkner link. This was not the last time that television fixated on this story - 20 years later came a three hour made-for-TV movie starring Don Johnson, Cybill Shepherd, and Jason Robards. Making LONG HOT SUMMER the most-filmed Faulkner story. About which one can only say: bizarre.

But for those of us devoted to all things Faulkner-related does anyone know how or where one might obtain the 26 (27?) episodes of this television series? I have eight and would like to watch the others. Cheryenne-Bodie, you seem extremely knowledgeable - any leads?
