Nathaniel Hawthorne: Awards & Accolades

Nathaniel Hawthorne: TV/Movies Based on Books

In addition to the many films based on it, The Scarlet Letter was also turned into a television miniseries in 1979. The book was adapted into four episodes of sixty minutes apiece. The second entry in the series won the 1979 Emmy Award for Outstanding Video Tape Editing for a Limited Series or Special. The series starred Josef Sommer, Meg Foster, and John Heard.

Hawthorne's most famous work, The Scarlet Letter, has been adapted into a film numerous time. The original adaptation was in 1908 and then it was done again in 1911, 1913, 1917, 1922, 1926, 1934, 1973, and 1995. The first six adaptations of the book were all silent films. The 1995 version is considered a loose adaptation of the work which did not improve on the original as it is considered to be one of the worst films ever made despite starring Demi Moore, Gary Oldman, and Robert Duvall.

The Scarlet Letter also served as the inspiration for the 2010 film Easy A starring Emma Stone. The main character is inspired by the original and decides to use it to her advantage.

Nothing has been adapted quite like The Scarlet Letter, but it is not the only Hawthorne work to make its way to film. Here are the other films made from Hawthorne books in alphabetical order:

The House of Seven Gables: Based on Hawthorne's 1851 novel of the same name. This adaptation was released in 1940 and starred George Sanders, Margaret Lindsay, and Vincent Price.

Puritan Passions: A 1923 silent film that was based on a play called The Scarecrow by Percy MacKaye which itself was inspired by a short story from Nathaniel Hawthorne called "Feathertop".

The Scarecrow: A straight-to-VHS animated movie by Warner Brothers that was based on the MacKaye play The Scarecrow, an adaptation of Hawthorne's short story "Feathertop".

Twice-Told Tales: This is a horror anthology film and features three of Hawthorne's works being adapted. "Dr. Heidegger's Experiment", released in 1837, and "Rappaccini's Daughter", released in 1844, were based on short stories. The third story in the film was based on The House of the Seven Gables. Vincent Price starred in the previous adaptation of that book and starred in this film as well, appearing in all three segments.

Wakefield: A 2016 film starring Bryan Cranston and Jennifer Garner. This is a tricky one as it was actually based on a short story called "Wakefield" from E.L. Doctorow. However, that story was inspired by a short story called "Wakefield" from Hawthorne.
