This is to Troy Swartz who was looking for film versions of Merchant.
I've had tremendous luck looking things up on the Internet Movie
Database.  You may search by title, actor, director, etc.

Good luck.

This joke is, I think, something of a topos. My favorite answer was
supposed to have been given by an equally arch senior director, [fill in
your name of choice], who opined:

"In my experience, Hamlet is almost always sleeping with Ophelia.
Unless, of course, he's sleeping with Laertes."
