Bruce Springsteen released a song titled "A Good Man is Hard to Find (Pittsburgh)" on his 1998 retrospective collection Tracks. Springsteen has stated that his important reading began with authors such as O'Connor, whose works he felt captured aspects of America that he wanted to explore in his own work.
A film adaptation of the short story "A Good Man Is Hard To Find", titled "Black Hearts Bleed Red", was made in 1992 by New York filmmaker Jeri Cain Rossi. The film stars noted New York artist Joe Coleman.
An original 45-minute modern chamber opera based on "A Good Man is Hard to Find" was completed in 2003 by David Volk, a University of Georgia music doctoral student, as part of his dissertation requirements in composition. The chamber opera was performed at the Seney-Stovall Chapel in Athens with grant funding from the University's Ideas for Creative Exploration (ICE). Later that same year, the work was performed at Piedmont College in Demorest, GA, and in Milledgeville, GA, at "Flannery O'Connor: the Visionary and the Venacular," an interdisciplinary conference sponsored by Georgia College and State University (and home of the Flannery O'Connor Library). In 2007, the work was performed at the University of Virginia's College at Wise where Dr. Volk teaches as Assistant Professor of Music.
