Annotation

Detailed account of the filming of Hemingway’s funeral scene for the film adaption of Henry S. Villard and James Nagel’s Hemingway in Love and War. Bittner argues that the film lost important literary context when filmmakers removed the scene and that this may have contributed to its commercial and critical failure. Discusses the picture’s fate in the context of modern moviemaking, in which big budgets and celebrity actors are often given priority over script, story line, and historical or literary background.
