Probably for the best, Orson Wells has a rendition that I am acquiring, there have been a few newer films released as well.

I've seen most of Man of La Mancha, the 1972 movie with Peter O'Toole and Sophia Loren. It ties in a bit about Cervantes in addition to the actual Don Quixote story. It's pretty good, but it's the music that really makes the movie.

I tried looking for a movie version on Netflix. There is a children's cartoon version and an old black and white version directed by Orson Welles. The reviews for the latter were pretty scathing, so I haven't watched either yet. There is also a ballet inspired by the play on Netflix as well. I guess it would be pretty hard to make a movie version without cutting out huge chunks of plot.

Interesting I had not come across the ballet. There is an opera titled Don Quichotte, and also a Broadway musical with book adaptation titled Man of La Mancha.

This is really great:


Bravo, Bravo!!

I love the Broadway musical. They turned it into a movie in 1972, which I mentioned in my previous post. The music is so beautiful in it, and if you haven't heard it yet, listen to the song The Impossible Dream as well:
