Many years ago, a New Statesman competition asked for triple bills of films which might make a good program. The one that my kids and I remember fondly was: On the beach/Jaws/A farewell to arms.

I thought we might open it to plays and books as well.

Have fun!

I love paulb's example but can't think of any similar titles. So here's another mixed one (in a slightly different way); all I could dream up:

Rocky/Horror Picture/Showboat
