Since the first film version of Joseph Conrad's Victory appeared on the silent screen in 1919, more than eighty film and video versions of his life and works have been made throughout the world. In a series of essays by leading film and literary scholars Conrad on Film surveys the history and theory of these adaptations, and examines the challenges faced by major directors such as Hitchcock, Welles, Coppola and Wajda in putting Conrad on film. This landmark study of Conrad films, and film adaptations in general, is well illustrated and includes a detailed filmography and film bibliography.
