For anybody who lives in the UK and is interested, the film of Shout at the Devil is showing on Channel 5 tomorrow afternoon Sat 30th at 1pm.
If you don't live in the Uk i can only offer my apologies, but don't worry it is not a classic but worth watching all the same.

A film that is only memorable for the pair of eyes clearly visible inside a ridiculous crocodile outfit.

I didn't see this post yesterday, but happened to come across the film whilst channel hopping earlier. Not the greatest film - very cheesy, but quite loyal to the book, apart from the way Flynn dies IIRC.

Screenplay was by Wilbur Smith himself

does anyone have any opinions on which of Smith's books would make the best film.

I think probably Eagle in the Sky (Probably appeals to more people- action AND romance)

If we're only talking about standalones then "Hungry as the Sea" or "The Eye of the Tiger" should be good films!

I agree! I can see "Hungry as the Sea" directed by James Cameron or Spielberg. It would be a hell of a spectacle with the technical advances moton pictures have today.

I'd love to see any of those 3 books made into film, but i doubt whether anybody would go with 'Eagle in the Sky' which is a shame.

Maybe Wrong

But I think that i read somewhere that Wilbur Smith was so disappointed with this film that he asked for his name to be taken off the credits in the film.
