I have not seen any of the dramatizations, but there have been several, including That Forsyte Woman in 1949 where the bad guy is played by Errol Flynn.

Mirrormask is a Jim Henson Company film written by Neal Gaiman. The visual imagery is the real star of the show, but the movie itself was delightful, too, and easily viewable again.
Here's the trailer:
Here's the scene with the giants:
Star Trek connection: Alan Oppenheimer, who played 3 different roles in the Star Trek series, had an uncredited bit part in this film.

We've watched several movies, but instead of trying to go back and put them on the day they were watched I'm just going to write them up today.
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen , part of a thematic trio directed by Terry Gilliam, is loosely based on stories written in the 1700's (but, again, indebted to earlier tales) of the real-life baron. Time Bandits and Brazil are the other 2 in this "trilogy of the imagination".
This has been made into several movies over the years beginning in 1911. While I can't find any of the early films online here's a trailer for the 1943 version:
Here's a short clip of the Gilliam version (spoiler alert):
Star Trek connection: John Neville, who plays the Baron in this film, was Isaac Newton in an episode of ST:TNG. Also, the supervising producer of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is set to be one of the executive producers of the upcoming (11th) Star Trek movie.

28 After he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say this, ‘The Lord needs it.’” 32 So those who were sent departed and found it as he had told them. 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 They said, “The Lord needs it.” 35 Then they brought it to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!” 39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, order your disciples to stop.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”
