The movie came on tv this weekend and the bf was watching it for a few minutes. He already had an idea of where the plot was going but since we were going somewhere we didn’t stay to watch and see if he was right. So I looked it up on IMDB and found several versions of the movie, three of which were released in a three year period!
There were versions made in 1945, '46, '48, '56 and 1966. They starred the likes of Rex Harrison, Betty Davis, Dirk Bogarde and Lauren Bacall (not all in the same film).
I saw that it was based on a play and wondered if they made a movie for every big name cast that may have done the play. Then I wondered why they stopped remaking it. Anyone know why so many versions were made?
