* FilmOfTheBook: Several adaptations of varying quality. The two theatrical versions, Irving Rapper's 1950 film with Gertrude Lawrence, Arthur Kennedy, Jane Wyman and a young KirkDouglas, and a 1987 adaptation, directed by PaulNewman and starring Joanne Woodward and Creator/JohnMalkovich, have mixed critical reputations. A 1973 TV version starring KatharineHepburn and Sam Waterston is much better-regarded.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousDisorder: Laura's disorder is never named, but she may be suffering from anxiety disorder or mild schizophrenia. Her poor social skills and fixation on glass figurines could indicate Asperger's Syndrome.
