McTeague: A Story of San Francisco


  • Greed, Erich von Stroheim's film version of McTeague, was made in 1924. In its original form it lasted approximately eight hours but was drastically cut by the studio, MGM, and most of the excised footage has been lost.
  • An earlier adaptation was titled McTeague (1916). No copies of that film are known to exist.
  • Karen Kearns produced a radio drama version of McTeague in 1989, under a Corporation for Public Broadcasting Fellowship. The program featured Stacy Keach, Carol Kane, Hector Elizondo, JoBeth Williams, Michael York, Katherine Helman, Ed Asner, Joe Spano, and many other well-known television and film actors.
  • McTeague was the basis of an opera of the same name by composer William Bolcom and librettist Arnold Weinstein, which premiered on October 31, 1992.
