Edit
Trivia This remains the only film adaptation of a fictional work written by J.D. Salinger, having been adapted from his short story, "Uncle Wiggly in Connecticut", taken from the volume Nine Short Stories. Salinger was incredibly disappointed with the changes made to his original story, and never again allowed any of his work to be adapted for film. See more »
