Mississippi Burning (1988) True events meshed in with fictional characters and a change of historical facts. 

The Patriot (2000) Mel Gibson's character is a mix of Francis Marion, Daniel Morgan, Andrew Pickens and Thomas Sumter.

Didn't realize there would be so many. 

I just thought of these:

THE LIFE OF RILEY (1949) with William Bendix reprising the role he made popular on the radio. It later became a TV sitcom as well.

MY FRIEND IRMA (1949) and MY FRIEND IRMA GOES WEST (1950) were both based on the hit radio sitcom starring Marie Wilson. It also transferred to television in the 1950s.

MCHALE'S NAVY was turned into a movie, twice...first time with Ernest Borgnine in 1964, then with Tom Arnold in 1997.

It's the opposite of what's asked for (but all I can think of for this topic). The Brady Bunch (1969-1974) was based off of Yours, Mine and Ours (1968) (supposedly, from what I heard).

Thank you Lonesome for being "lazy" and posting that wonderful schedule for us!

Are all of these films available to the public?
