Media Adaptations

The 1973 film version by Giuseppe Patrone Griffi, released by London's Miracle Films, stars Oliver Tobias. While not an entirely faithful adaptation of the play, the film does retain the spirit of Ford's original.

In 1962, BBC radio's Third Programme presented a radio version of the play.

The BBC produced a second radio adaptation on Radio 3 in 1970.

Roland Joffe directed an adaptation of the play for BBC2 television in 1980. Joffe's adaptation portrays Giovanni and Annabella, somewhat sympathetically, as rebels and condemns the hypocrisy of the mercantile, courtly, and religious society in which they live.
