** While the 1935 version is possibly the most unfaithful of all the adaptations, many people still consider it [[TropesAreTools a classic in its own right]] because of great performances from Creator/FredricMarch as Valjean and Creator/CharlesLaughton as Javert, as well as the GrandfatherClause (it was made during the HaysCode era, so they couldn't get away with much).

* ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' has a massively changed Willy Wonka.

to:

* ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' has ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory''. It would have scored a 4 if their massively changed Willy Wonka.Wonka didn't impact the story so greatly..

* Film/Matilda: Scores about a 3.5. Changing the setting to America leaves an impact on the film, but it's one of the more faithful adaptations of Dahl's works.

* The older and more established the original work is, and the more existing film adaptations that have been done with it, the less "need" new adaptations will feel to stick closely to the original, and the more likely chance that they will take their own approaches. This is especially true if the work is in the PublicDomain, and that's why works by people like WilliamShakespeare, JaneAusten and CharlesDickens get so many [[SettingUpdate Setting Updates]] and reinterpretations.
