Fat City by Leonard Gardner has long been one of my favorite books. I had heard John Huston adapted it into a movie, but I could never get my hands on it because it wasn't released on DVD. And the only copies of it I've seen have been VHS region 1. I'm a big fan of Huston, and I like the way he redoes books -- another example of him refashioning prose is his take on Flannery O'Connor's first novel Wise Blood-- so letting Fat City slip through my hands has always irked me. Going off this montage of the movie, I feel like I have good reason to be sad I've never seen it.
