One of my favorite short stories of all time! It's available online at:

http://instruct.westvalley.edu/lafave/hb.html

If you haven't read it, do yourself a favor -- it's pretty short.

The story was adapted (loosely) to television in 1995. The cast was
excellent, and I remember liking it a lot. Here's the IMDB info:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113264/

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be available on DVD.
