Sharpe is a series of British television movie dramas based on the Sharpe novels by Bernard Cornwell.

Cooper, Perkins, Sharpe, Harper, Hagman, Harris: Sharpe's Rifles

The first movie was Sharpe's Rifles released in 1993.  While the majority of the movies were based upon the novels written by Cornwell, there were a handful  which were original teleplays written exclusively for the screen, only one of which, Sharpe's Gold, borrowed the title of one of the novels. In this one instance, the screenplay and the novel which shared a title did not have any similarities in plot or story at all. The other original movies were Sharpe's Challenge, Sharpe's Justice, Sharpe's Mission, and Sharpe's Peril, none of which have equivalents among the novels.
