Great idea!
Suggs:
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (my personal, all-time favorite is the 2008 BBC three part series, not the one with Hugh Grant, but you could add both)

Persuasion by Jane Austen (again, personal favorite is the two parter from BBC in the 70's, but you can also add the modern made version)

It's the Novel and the Author choice here. Not the version that matters. Besides, picking older versions lets polltakers know that their favorite Authors, and their favorite version is not "The" only version. They may watch the other version!

And wait when you see the Ss' and I start having to decide which version of William Shakespeare's works to include. That's is gonna be a no win scenario.

You currently have three versions of Pride and Prejudice (including Lost in Austen) and none of Sense and Sensibility or Persuasion.

It's in provisionally at this time. Low vote count.
If there is room, it will stay

'Good one! My vote: Handmaid's Tale, although there are several good movies and series on the list. And yay women! : ) ('For all the works by women.) May I suggest editing the syntax of the intro?

From: What is your favorite Novelists work with a last name beginning in the letter "A", that has been turned into a TV Series or Movie?

To: What is your favorite movie or TV series based on a novel by an author with a last name beginning with the letter "A?"
