Great books that inspired great movies?

This weekend, I saw True Grit
. I loved it so much that I bought the book. The book is fantastic. (Why is this not considered a classic?) I'd love to discover other books that have been eclipsed by the film adaptation, but which deserve attention in their own right — books like True Grit
, Cool Hand Luke
, To Kill a Mockingbird
(okay, everyone knows that's a good book), and so on. Help me find great (but lesser-known) books that have inspired great (and well-known) movies.
