AB's Movies Based on Plays:

My "novels/books/stories" list is now separate from this one except for when the movie was originally in both forms. They are listed in random order with some favorites near the top. I've seen all of these, but it doesn't mean I recommend them all. I was just curious what films were based on any literature.
