Movie better than the book?

    This comes up on many movie threads - just happened to see it again in the The Right Stuff one - in which the movie is good, but, of course, the book happens to be better.

    Is there a case when the movie was better than the book? (And I mean movies made from already existing books, not those ones in which they put out a book because the movie did well.)

    I'm sure there is ... but I can't think of one off the top of my head. I love Field of Dreams, but read the book first and still think it's better. Never read The Godfather, maybe that's one (doubtful).

    The Shawshank Redemption was a better movie. The book was good, the movie was just better.

    Lord of the Rings. Or rather, maybe I should say the movies were easier to get through than the movie. JRR put a LOT of detail and sometimes, it's hard to follow the plot.
