MOVIE OR TV PRODUCTIONS

They're going to put me in the movies…

The star-studded film version of the play is a classic.

And TV, too.

Just because it's made-for-TV doesn't mean it isn't full of great actors.

And for good measure…

People seem to love to make this play into a TV movie. Check this one out, too.

One for the road.

This is the earliest TV adaptation of the play. Ta-da.
