Ten remakes that beat the originals

Posted by , 17 December 2008

The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981)

Based on a 1934 crime novel by James Cain, this was made in 1939 in French, in 1942 in Italian, and then in 1946 in Hollywood, but it is the later, seminal Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange version that wins all the plaudits. The plot’s simple: a bored fox is lured into a plan by a passing sleaze to kill off her husband. Cue violence, tension, and most importantly of all, a sex scene on a kitchen table that was reputedly the real deal.
