List of plays adapted into feature films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of plays that have been adapted into feature films followed by a list of feature films based on stage plays or musicals.

Shakespeare plays[edit]

The Guinness Book of Records lists 410 feature-length film and TV versions of William Shakespeare's plays as having been produced, which makes him the most filmed author ever in any language.[1]

The Internet Movie Database lists Shakespeare as having writing credit on 1,171 films, with 21 films in active production, but not yet released, as of June 2016. The earliest known production is King John from 1899.[2]

Other plays[edit]

This is a list of plays other than those written by William Shakespeare (covered by the above section) that have been adapted into feature films. The title of the play is followed by its first public performance, its playwright, the title of the film adapted from the play, the year of the film and the film's director. If a film has an alternate title based on geographical distribution, the title listed will be that of the widest distribution area.

Kazan initially wrote the story with a vengeful, violent ending, while Williams advocated a more ambiguous ending. Kazan acquiesced, and is not credited as a writer. Williams was involved in the writing periodically throughout filming.
