The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald. He also wrote many short stories about a Hollywood screenwriter that you can find collected as "The Pat Hobby Stories".

One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest. Great book, Great film. Jaws ditto. The Shining a lesson on how to find the essence of the story and carve it out of the book, I would also recommend you take a look at the mini series to see what happens when you don't do that. Casino Royale to see how well an old story can update flawlessly (see both versions just because Peter Sellers is great in anything he ever did). For Whom the Bell Tolls, again, GB GF, Ditto for The Old Man and the Sea. And then there is The French Connection Good Book, BETTER Film!! :D
