Moby Dick Tracy

The 'merge two books' theme has spread like wildfire. The most erudite set of contributions I have read so far is from Crooked Timber who have also included films. Here are some more of my favourites.

Goldilocks and The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch (These metal teeth are too big! These Jensen eyes are too small! But this mechanical arm is just right!)
Remains of the Longest Day (An old-style English butler is drafted to cater the invasion of Normandy)
Tales of the City of God (racy gay confessions of St. Augustine)
The Magnificent Seven Ambersons (Several generations of a prominent but snobbish and troubled midwestern family fight to defend their town against incredible odds)

And I would like to see:

The Crying of Salem’s Lot 49
The Unbearable Lightness of Being John Malkovich
The Spanish Prisoner of Azkaban
