The following are based on Tennessee Williams' plays, but the titles intrigued me so much to watch the film versions first:

- The Glass Menagerie

- A Streetcar Named Desire

- Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

- Sweet Bird of Youth

OP you know that Gone With the Wind is the name of a book, right? You think they made it up for the movie?

Its title was memorably parodied by the Three Stooges short two years later entitled "Violent is the Word for Curly."
