First to come to my head was The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Peter Jackson not only proved that the books were not "unfilmable" (a term which people are going to have to stop using), but made three films that really are brilliant artistic productions as much as they are huge commercial successes (and who could have predicted the latter).

I also would pick Clockwork over 2001, but thats maybe just because I think the changes from the book were excellent.

Lawrence of Arabia because Lean hasn't been mentioned yet.
