John,
In addition to the titles you and Barry listed concerning G10 and Regular 17 bindings that have movie tie-in dust jackets, here are more:
In G10:
1. Austen, Emma (A&E)
2. Austen, Pride and Prejudice (A&E)
3. Bronte, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Mobil Masterpiece Theatre)
4. Hardy, Tess of the D'Ubervilles (A&E)
5. Melville, Moby Dick (two different DJs with movie tie-in)
6. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
7. Berendt, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Regular 17
1. Capote, In Cold Blood
2. Conrad, Nostromo (a special sticker on the regular DJ noting the movie)
3. Shelley, Frankenstein (A&E)

There are, of course many G10 (and one G11, Cloud Atlas) and Regular 17 ML titles that have been made into movies that do not have DJs noting the movie.
I wish you good fortune in finding all the movie tie-in printings.

All the best,
Bill Hornick

One fun side interest with collecting #17 and G10  MLs is the increased number 
of titles that are available with TV or Movie Tie-in DJs.  I have 8 of these, 
including:
Gulliver?s Travels, Joe Gould?s Secret, Moll Flanders, Possession, Jane Eyre, 
Middlemarch, Far From the Madding Crowd, Tom Jones, and a 9th, Cider House 
Rules, with a picture from the movie on the cover, but no mention of the movie.  
Anyone know of others?

In response to Brian, I do collect the style 17 and G10 volumes to an extent - 
not a completist by any stretch and generally only titles that are interesting 
to me (unless in good condition and really cheap, which does sometimes happen).  
I find the books in the uniform jackets appealing.  Still, there are some great 
titles in the series - Vidal's Empire series as you noted (there aren't a lot of 
copies of Burr out there I found).  

I don't care for the more recent editions however - aesthetically I don't find 
them appealing and the titles seem more scattershot/experimental for my taste.  
Just my impression though.

I don't collect ML's from this period systematically but I do have a number of 
them.? I have tie-in dj's that aren't on your list for the following titles: 
???Hardy, Return of the Native (Hallmark Hall of Fame Presentation) 
???Melville, Moby Dick (Hallmark Hall of Fame?Presentation on the USA Network; 
"Enter the Moby Dick Sweepstakes at www.usanetwork.com") 
???H. G. Wells,?Island of Dr. Moreau (motion?picture from New Line Cinema) 
?? Scott, Ivanhoe (A&E/BBC presentation) 
I? have copies of ? Middlemarch in a standard dj of this period ?with a?picture 
of George Eliot on the front panel as well as a ?dj promoting the ?Hallmark Hall 
of Fame Presentation. 

I think the 1940 printing of Eugene O'Neill's "The Long Voyage Home"?was the 
ML's first? tie-in jacket.? Not only did the jacket have cover art created to 
promote the film and the words 'THE COMPLETE STORY OF THE JOHN FORD MOTION 
PICTURE PRODUCTION PRESENTED BY WALTER WANGER?, but the title was changed from 
"The Moon of the Caribbees? ? and Six Other Plays of the Sea"?to "The Long 
Voyage Home [the title of the film]: Seven lays of the Sea."? All future 
printings were published under the new title.
