A Death in Canaan is a 1978 American made-for-television drama film directed by Tony Richardson and starring Stefanie Powers, Paul Clemens, and Brian Dennehy. Its plot concerns the true-life story of a teenager who is put on trial for the murder of his mother in a small Connecticut town.

The film first aired on the CBS Wednesday Night Movies on March 1, 1978, and was never officially released on any analog or digital medium for rental or sale.

Arthur Miller wrote his one-act play Some Kind of Love Story (1984) loosely based on the same incident. He later adapted it into a screenplay for Everybody Wins (film) (1990) starring Debra Winger and Nick Nolte.
