Summary
  • "This reference work is an annotated guide to American stage productions remade for film and television, with works ranging from late 19th-century American plays and musicals, through silent and sound films, to made-for-video productions by PBS, A & E, HBO, and others."
  • "Each entry first provides credits for the play or musical: date, theatre, playwright, cast (with characters) and crew, length of run, choreographer, song titles, and authors of the score (when available). The screen versions follow, listing alternate titles, date, studio, screenwriter, cast (with characters), director, and producer
  • Detailed commentary is given on what changes occurred between the formats, the strengths and weaknesses of each, the success of the transition, and how the end product was received. Cross references, bibliography, and name and title indexes complete the work."--Jacket
