Ah, I see.
I know that if you get off the beaten path and start counting episodes of TV shows that used the storyline and other non-traditional versions then they can start adding up pretty quickly.
Of the traditional, feature-length versions, I can only think of a handful:
1935, 1938, 1951, 1970, 1984, 1999, 2009. I believe there may have been one also in 1950 or so with Vincent Price, but I've heard it's terrible so I've never sought it out.
I wonder how long before the next major adaptation. And by major, I don't necessarily mean theatrical, it could be made-for-TV like the '99 version with Patrick Stewart. A new one seems to come around every 15 years or so on average, it seems.
Thankfully I draw the line at the TV episodes. That could run into the hundreds or more. The Vincent Price one is kind of dry. A number of the TV movies are very good. The George C. Scott TV movie version from 1984 is probably one of the best renditions I've ever seen.
Just out of curiosity, if a new adaptation was announced would you be eagerly anticipating it, or do you think the story has been done to death?
Ice Cube supposedly has one coming out soon that I'm interested in seeing.
