Based on Nathaniel Hawthorne?s 1908 story, Feathertop Tale, Wilder portrays the scarecrow that becomes Lord Ravensbane, an instrument of ill-will who successfully woos Rachel Merton (Blythe Danner), ironically learning the values of love and friendship, and eventually choosing to die in order to save Rachel from further grief.
