(from publishersweekly.com)



Random House is going after film buffs. The publisher's Vintage Books imprint has created Vintage Movie Classics to release backlist books that served as the basis for iconic films.

The new line will release its first list in the spring with four re-issues: Edna Ferber's Showboat (1926); Cimarron (1929), also by Ferber; Fannie Hurst's Back Street (1931); and Booth Tarkington's Alice Adams (1921).

Other announced titles in the new line, set for later release, include: R.A. Dick's The Ghost and Mrs. Muir; William March's The Bad Seed; and Walter D. Edmonds' Drums Along the Mohawk.
