  • Anne Bancroft's husband, Mel Brooks, purchased the rights to the story for her as a twenty-first anniversary present. Based on the memoirs of Helene Hanff, a television writer, which detailed her correspondence with bookseller Frank Doel over twenty years. In 1975, the BBC produced a television show based on Hanff's memoirs. This program, in turn, was adapted for the stage in 1981 by James Roose-Evans. The 1982 New York stage version ran for 96 performances. The Broadway show's original cast included Rosemary Leach (Helene Hanff), David Swift (Frank Doel), Barbara Ward (Cecily Farr), Charmian May (Megan Wells/Maxine Stuart), Charles Kinross (Mr. Martin), Adrian Hall (William Humphries), and Susanna Best (John Todd).
