From Broadway to Hollywood

Let's keep all the original information below in our heads--

 

Hint: Actor's 1st Oscar award nomination was Supporting Actor for a 50's film that introduced one of Hollywood's legendary female superstars of the 50's and 60's.

 

FYI--This actor's TV show was "bigger" than *My Favorite Maritian* and he was the star.

This '40s Broadway revue had a similar premise as a multi-Oscar-winning film of the '40s. One of its stars was also a co-star of a landmark musical film of the late '40s.. The Broadway revue was made into a film in the early '50s which was a musical, but many of the songs from the revue were deleted. The film starred a woman who was big box office.. Name of revue and film?

No.......The revue was about the same broad topic as a huge '40s film directed by William Wyler.

The "Call Me Mister" original cast recording was the first music of any kind I ever listened to, when I was about 3 years old. My grandparents owned it..... Thread is open.

Metz, Just so happens I was thinking of Earl Carroll and you were first. But I guess Ziggy produced one movie so that answer would be correct also.

 

Metz is up--

Sometimes the Broadway playwright wrote the screenplay for the movie adaptation of his/her work and sometimes not.

 

And Sometimes the playwright wrote the screenplay for a film adapted from somebody else's novel.

 

And Sometimes the playwright wrote an original screenplay for a movie.

 

Please give me an example of all the above: There will be 4 answers. But, take care, there doesn't have to be 4 different playwrights mentioned.
