Anne Frank Adaptations
Aug. 12, 2009

Published by guardian.co.uk

The Diary of Anne Frank (1955)

Dramatised by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, this play was a huge success on Broadway in the mid-50s, receiving both the Pulitzer prize for drama and the Theatre World award. One review spoke of the play's "[invasion of] the privacy of the whole audience".

The Diary of Anne Frank (1959)

George Stevens's 1959 film adaptation of the play was nominated for eight Academy Awards, winning three. Anne's father, Otto Frank, had been keen for Audrey Hepburn to play the lead role, but she declined and the part was taken by teenage model Millie Perkins.

Anne Frank: The Whole Story (2001)

The Anne Frank Foundation refused to endorse this ABC miniseries and so prevented any quotes from Anne's diaries appearing. Despite this, Ben Kingsley won a Screen Actor's Guild award for his performance as Otto while Hannah Taylor-Gordon received both Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for her portrayal of Anne.

The Diary of Anne Frank: A Song to Life (2008)

Madrid hosted Un Canto a La Vida, a musical based on her life story and starring 13-year-old Isabella Castillo. The musical caused a rift between the Anne Frank Foundation, which supported it, and the Anne Frank Fund, which said the diarist's life was "no theme for a happy evening of song and dance".
