The Paper Chase was a US TV series from 1979 set in a Law School, starring John Houseman as the wonderfully droll Professor Kingsfield. This TV series followed a movie which also starred John Houseman in the same role, the movie being based on John Jay Osborn's original book published in 1971. The series was revived as "The Paper Chase : The Second Year" in 1983 and again as "The Paper Chase : The Third Year" in 1985. John Houseman also played Professor Kingsfield in episode 6 of the TV series "The Associates" in 1979. I have only the one original novel by Osborn in my collection with the TV series cover (pictured below). This was also published by Popular Library Books in the US.
