Don't lose any sleep over the question finance, positive the answer is WILLIAM BENDIX

 

The Depression killed his grocery business. Even when he owned his grocery business he tried his hand in acting. He appeared in the 1939 Broadway play The Time of Your Life that success lead him to Hollywood. You can read all about it on imdb under William Bendix.

OK....I'll try this...

 

This actress was well known for her stage performances in the 30's and 40's.

She won an Oscar for a film in the 70's that was turned down by another famous stage and screen star.

 

Who am I?

There was a play on Broadway. In the cast were a future well-known fim actor and film actress. The play was made into a film, with a different title. The actor who was in the play made his feature film debut in the film. The actress who was in the play was also in the film. It was her second feature film. Title of play? Title of film? Actor? Actress?

Play with a southern background was a Broadway hit. Movie adaptation did alright. Playwright also adapted the play for the movies. Rumor has it that the star of the movie went to the Broadway show and took notes.

 

We need the name of the play/movie, the playwright,and the stars of the Broadway Play and Hollywood the movie.

Fra - - you are very thorough and I'm sorry you had to go to so much trouble.

 

But I was just looking for the names of the two starring leading ladies - -

 

 

the originator on Broadway was Tallulah Bankhead

 

And of course, the Warner Brothers star was Bette Davis

 

 

Frazier, it's all yours - -

These two '50s films were based on plays that had been done on Broadway , with Edward G. Robinson in a key role in one, and Paul Newman in a key role in the other. Film titles?

Newman co-starred with Elizabeth Taylor in Tennessee Williams' film version of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

 

Robinson starred, along with Sinatra, in the film adaptation of the Broadway play, a hole in the head.

You misread the question. Newman and Robinson starred in the STAGE versions.

The way the question was stated, I misread it as well.

 

Edward G. Robinson starred in "Middle Of The Night" on Broadway with a young Gena Rowlands.  Fredric March starred in the movie version with Kim Novak.  Martin Balsam appeared in both the stage and screen versions.

 

Paul Newman starred in "The Desperate Hours" on Broadway with Karl Malden.  Humphrey Bogart and Fredric March starred in the movie version.
