Euripides to The Cyclops (1957)? 🤣 I'm fairly confident that Bert I. Gordon did not have the Euripides' satyr play in mind when he wrote and directed that one! 😉

As for Norman Mailer...

The Naked and the Dead (1958)

Next: Sophocles (and, yes, it is all Greek to me!)

Why wouldn't he have had it in mind? His movie is inspired by the Greek myth.
