The male lead was known for playing second banana in romantic triangle films to one of films' biggest stars, and the female lead played a key supporting role in a landmark film a few years earlier which had yielded a Best Actor Oscar winner. The film version was released 3 years later, with different male and female leads, directed by a legendary director. Title?
