The premiere Broadway production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" opened at the Lyceum Theater (New York City) on April 22, 1895, ran for 12 performances and has been revived in New York City eight times since as of 2010. See more »
Wendy Hiller celebrated the 50th anniversary of her movie debut (as Liza Doolittle in "Pygmalion") with this hysterical performance as Lady Bracknell. It's a filmed-for-TV stage production rather than a movie as such. It doesn't seem available anywhere -- a real loss for comedy fans.
