A cinematic adaptation of Daisy Miller was directed and produced for Paramount Pictures by Peter Bogdanovich in 1974. The film is visually very pleasing, has some memorable scenes such as Winterbourne's first encounter with Daisy in the hotel garden in Vevey and the party in Mrs. Walker's apartment in Rome, and is enlivened by fine performances by the supporting actresses Eileen Brennan as Mrs. Walker, Mildred Natwick as Mrs. Costello, and Cloris Leachman as Mrs. Miller. The overall result, however, is disappointing. The screenplay by Frederic Raphael remains very faithfu l to the original tale in terms of plot and dialogue but pushes the failed love story to the foreground and preserves little of James's social and psychological nuance. In addition, while Barry Brown convincingly conveys Winterbourne's divided attitude toward Daisy, Cybill Shepherd is miscast, or poorly directed, in the title role.
