This may be a tough--and/or expensive--find for you. There is a filmed version of Aphra Behn's Restoration play, The Rover, in existence, but it is not an easy movie to find; whether it is a motion picture or filmed stage play, I have not been able to determine. has it listed for sale on DVD, but it is currently unavailable--new or used. After a fairly lengthy Google search, I have managed to find a very expensive copy of a filmed stage production (not a motion picture) of The Rover from 1996 on VHS tape (from 2004). The cost is 67 pounds (more than $100) and is available from Great Britain at the link below.
