The most well-known popular culture event associated with the novel is arguably Mark David Chapman's shooting of John Lennon.[1]


Although Salinger has refused a film adaptation, many Hollywood films have based characters on Holden Caulfield.[2][3]

Anthony Caputi, a specialist in dramatic literature at Cornell University, claims that the novel inspires both "variations" and "imitations", comparing it with several coming-of-age films.[2]

While screenwriter Mike White thought the influence of the novel may rise in Hollywood,[2] former CEO of The WB Jordan Levin said that the Academies behind the Emmys have lost touch with public tastes like Catcher in the Rye.[4]

  • In Annie Hall (1977), Woody Allen says that he only has books with the word death or dying in them. Diane Keaton holds a copy of The Catcher in the Rye and says, "What about this one?"
  • In The Shining (1980), Wendy is seen reading the novel, a foreshadowing of alienation similar to that of Holden.[6]
  • The 1988 film Field of Dreams is based on the W. P. Kinsella book Shoeless Joe. In the film, one key subplot involves the main character, Ray Kinsella (played by Kevin Costner), kidnapping noted radical book author Terence Mann (played by James Earl Jones). The Mann character is described as having written some of the most controversial books of the 1960s, including The Boat Rocker. In the original book that this film is based on, the Kinsella character actually kidnaps Salinger. According to the DVD extras, the author and the film producers acknowledge the fact that Salinger begrudgingly allowed his namesake to be used as a character in the book, but asked that he not be portrayed on film in Field of Dreams. So the producers and screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson, in consultation with the author Kinsella, changed the Salinger role to that of the fictional Mann. In a direct omage to the book, the Mann character initially denies, then admits, about using the name John Kinsella in one of his short stories, and that John Kinsella is the name of Ray's father. Salinger used both the name Ray Kinsella in a short story, and later the name Richard Kinsella as one of Holden Caulfield's classmates in The Catcher in the Rye.

  • In Conspiracy Theory (1997), Mel Gibson's character is programmed to buy the novel whenever he sees it, though he has never actually read it.[14]
  • In Pleasantville (1998), Bud is asked by one of the teenage residents of Pleasantville what the book is about, as all literature had been out of reach to the citizens, on account of its controversial themes in that period of time. Bud tells the crowd of people what the book is about, then later it is one of the many images painted on the Police Station wall by Bud and a friend.
  • In Rushmore (1998), the protagonist named Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), who was based on Holden Caulfield, has similar characteristics and interests as Holden does.
  • Chasing Holden (2001) is named after Holden Caulfield.[15] The protagonist Neil relates his life to Holden's, skips class to go to New York City, goes on a road trip to New Hampshire to find J. D. Salinger, and contemplates killing Salinger with a gun.[16]
  • In Go (2001), Tsubaki Sakurai asks Sugihara, "what are you reading? The Catcher in the Rye? Doesn't suit you."
  • Screenwriter Mike White regards the novel as "part of a literary trend that goes back to Goethe's 'The Sorrows of Werther' (1774) ... I don't think Salinger discovered it. He just did the quintessential American version."[2] He thought the influence of the novel may rise in Hollywood,[2] and two of his 2002 films reflect this. In Orange County, protagonist Shaun searches for the professor who wrote the book that changed his life.[2]
  • In The Good Girl, protagonist Thomas Worther calls himself Holden and is seen reading the novel.[2][3] Incidentally, Thomas Worther is portrayed by actor Jake Gyllenhaal, whose production company, Nine Stories Productions, is named after Nine Stories by Salinger.[2]
  • In Big Fat Liar (2002), Amanda Bynes's character is briefly seen tutoring a jock. Before Frankie Muniz's character walks in, she gives the jock a very brief thematic summary of The Catcher in the Rye, explaining that the story is not about "a catcher eating rye bread."
  • Igby Goes Down (2002), originally intended to be a novel, has been interpreted as being inspired by The Catcher in the Rye,[3][17][18] but director and screenwriter Burr Steers said it is not a direct influence and the story is more of an autobiography.[2] On the influence of The Catcher in the Rye, Steers "liken[s] it to being a musician and being influenced by the music ingrained in you, like the Beatles."[2]
  • In Spike Lee's 25th Hour (2002), based on David Benioff's 2001 novel The 25th Hour, the protagonist sees the words "Fuck You!" written on a mirror in the bathroom of a bar. He goes on a virulent tirade against the city of New York, its people, and his friends. Finally remorseful, he blames himself for throwing his life away. He tries desperately to rub out the words.[19]
  • In I Love Your Work, famous actor Gray Evans (Giovanni Ribisi) is confronted by a fan (Jason Lee) he's seen around a few times, which has disturbed him. The fan reaches inside his coat, causing Evans to punch him, leading to his arrest. After being released, during a conversation with his lawyer, Gray defends himself saying he thought he was going to be killed, but his lawyer says the fan only wanted him to sign his book. Gray replies 'it was Catcher in the fucking Rye!'

Later, at the end of the film during the end credits, the song "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" is played, the same song Holden Caulfield listens to as it's played by the carrousel in the final scene of The Catcher in the Rye.

In the film adaptation of The Collector, this conversation and Clegg's attitude toward the novel and popular culture is subdued.[30] The Collector novel has itself been linked to several serial killers.[14]
