The Scarecrow is a play by Percy Mac Kaye, written in 1908, but first presented on Broadway in 1911. It is based on Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story, Feathertop, but greatly expands the tale. Although it had what we would now consider an extremely short run in New York, it was filmed as Puritan Passions during the silent era, has been revived twice in New York (most recently in 2005), has been made into an opera, and has become a favorite of universities and local theatres.
The Scarecrow was a 1982 New Zealand film directed by Sam Pillsbury based on the 1963 novel by New Zealand author Ronald Hugh Morrieson about a killer in a small town.
The Scarecrow is a 1920 short comedy film starring comedian Buster Keaton. It was written and directed by Keaton and Edward F. Cline.
