The first big-screen adaptation of Thomas Harris' acclaimed "Hannibal" trilogy was 1986's Manhunter, which was based on the first book in his series Red Dragon. A mild box office success, the film gave audiences a first glimpse of the deranged, cannibalistic, former forensic psychologist Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
In 1991, the adaptation of Harris' second book The Silence of the Lambs was released. Directed by Jonathan Demme the film starred Jodie Foster as a young FBI agent and featured Anthony Hopkins in the role of Lecter. Hopkins' chilling portrayal perfectly encapsulated the sadistic character and became one of the most memorable performances in cinema history.
The film was a major success, both critically and financially, going on to become only the third in the history of the Academy Awards to sweep all five major categories; Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay & Best Picture. Hopkins would reprise his role in both 2001's adaptation of the third book Hannibal and 2002's re-packaging of Red Dragon.
