  • A Northern Light was released in an unabridged version on audiocassette by Listening Library in March 2003. It is narrated by Hope Davis.
  • Josef Von Sternberg's 1931 film An American Tragedy is an adaptation of Theodore Dreiser's novel about the murder of Grace Brown. It stars Phillips Holmes and Sylvia Sydney.
  • Softening the naturalistic aspects of the earlier film based on Dreiser's novel, George Steven's A Place in the Sun (1951) won six Academy Awards for its stunning characterizations of Grace Brown (Shelley Winters) and Chester Gillette (Montgomery Cliff). The film also features Elizabeth Taylor as the woman Chester chose over Grace.
