Mary Gemmato I wish The Man with The Golden Arm could be re-made into a movie with Nelson Algren's full concept for the story. With the ending he intending for the story. I know it would no shocking but that is as it should be. And with an unknown playing Frankie Machine. I wonder if his copy he wrote for the screenplay still exists in a file cabinet somewhere.

Printable Tire If Frankenstein can't be made into an accurate adaption of the book, I doubt The Man With the Golden Arm ever will be... both movie versions are heralded now as classics, and are too much of their era to really be made again: meaning if movie versions came out again, they would likely be remakes of the movies, not the books they were based on.
