Are their any other famous stage plays that have been filmed but kept as a stage play? Obviously 'Look Back In Anger' starred Richard Burton but was very much a film based on the John Osborne play. Where as the 1989 version with Emma Thompson kept pretty much as it would of looked as if you were in the theatre.
I have another John Osborne play adaption 'Hotel in Amsterdam' starring Tom Hollander that was faithful to the stage play. Also Beckett's 'Endgame' with Michael Gambon was excellent. Surley Anthony Hopkins, Peter O Toole and others have made special tv stage productions of famous plays through the years that were available for a limited release or a one off tv special?
Hope all this makes sense, it is late.
