The Turn of The Screw

A BBC version of The Turn of The Screwthat came out late 2009

By Henry James

Heroism Gone Bad

The film adaptation of The Turn of the Screw, "The Innocent" shows the governess protectingthe boy she is looking after from, what she thinks, are ghosts.

An act of heroism gone wrong. Spiderman, in an attempt to save Gwenn Stacy, winds up killing her instead.

Some of my favoriteTurn of the Screw book covers.

" They had nothing but me, and I—well, I had THEM. It was in short a magnificent chance. This chance presented itself to me in an image richly material. I was a screen—I was to stand before them. The more I saw, the less they would. I began to watch them in a stifled suspense, a disguised excitement that might well, had it continued too long, have turned to something like madness. What saved me, as I now see, was that it turned to something else altogether. It didn't last as suspense—it was superseded by horrible proofs. Proofs, I say, yes—from the moment I really took hold." - The Governess
