Sidney Franklin directed The Barretts of Wimpole Street in 1934 and 1957.
Yes. Same musical score re-used and I think it has the same screenplay. One we need on blu ray ie the Cinemascope - perspecta stereo version filmed in England.
William Wyler directed the Code-altered version of THE CHILDREN'S HOUR, retitled THESE THREE in 1936 and then the more faithful remake in 1961. Miriam Hopkins played Martha in the first film and Martha's selfish aunt in the remake.
Geirge Cukor directed WHAT PRICE
HOLLYWOOD?, regarded as the film which all versions of A STAR IS BORN originated from. He also did-in my opinion - the best remake starring Judy Garland and James Mason in 1954.
Walter Lang was the original director slated for the 1962 remake of his 1945 STATE FAIR and Don Ameche was supposed to be teamed alongside Alice Faye. This fell through and Jose Ferrer helmed the hit-and-miss remake with Tom Ewell replacing Ameche, much to Miss Faye's disdain!

Robert Harris's listing of The Ten Commandments twice in the initial post above got me to thinking: Is there any other director who made THREE different versions of the same story besides DeMille? ("The Squaw Man" 1914, 1918, and 1931)
I found another director who can lay claim to that title: Michael Curtiz. The 1932 film Alias the Doctor was a remake of two previous adaptations of the same story: The Charlatan in 1917 (from Hungary) and Nameless from 1923 (from Austria and a lost film).
