While Faulkner was working in Hollywood, he attempted to make screenplays of several stories. Only a few were finally produced. Today We Live (1933) was based on "Turnabout."

The Damned Don't Cry (1950) was based in part on "The Brooch" (Scribner's, 1936). Neither of these was especially successful. "The Brooch," "Shall Not Perish" (Story, 1943), and "Old Man" (part of The Wild Palms, 1939), were broadcast on Lux Video Theatre in 1953.

"Barn Burning" was eventually adapted for the Public Broadcasting Service's American Short Story series (1980).
