The Henry James Review 23.1 (2002) 1-24 // --> [Access article in PDF] Citizen Adam: The Latest James Ivory and the Last Henry James Garrett Stewart, University of Iowa [Figures] I was in rapid transit between Chicago and Iowa when I caught up with the heroic if unavailing publicity efforts of Merchant Ivory Films in the promotion of their latest literary adaptation. I had, as it happens, taken the train to Chicago in part to catch an actual screening of the film, only to find that it had been outposted to the far suburbs on the day of my arrival. When, instead, the movie finally caught up with me back in Iowa City, I sat utterly alone for the first time in fifty-odd (often very odd) years of moviegoing, in a large downtown theater, exiting eventually (the film isn't short) past a disgruntled projectionist qua doorman visibly impatient with my decision to see it through. In between failed and solitary venues, I had come upon the Amtrak travel magazine's glossy picture spread of the palaces of England and Italy that were sublet by the film's production crews in order to secure a cost-efficient period splendor. No argument there. The public, however, was neither enticed in large numbers nor, in the event, smitten enough to generate word of mouth. The critics didn't help. Suffice it to say that the widely unread novel was no hook either.
