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.


Goodbye, Mr. Lee.

One of the playwrights' obituaries. Sadface.

Here's an article about bringing the play to life for the first time. It's pretty moving, if you ask us.


Drummond's Big Moment

From the movie, a spicy version of Drummond's frustration with the trial's proceedings.

Check out this trailer for the play, starring Kevin Spacey, a Shmoop favorite.

While watching this review of a staged version of the play, we wonder: will critics always be critics? And we answer ourselves: yup.


Come One, Come All
