The Pardon is a 2013 drama film directed by Tom Anton. Filmed in Shreveport, Louisiana, it stars Jaime King as Toni Jo Henry, a woman who overcomes a tragic beginning but was executed for murder, and John Hawkes as "Arkie" Burke, Henry's partner in the crime.

The picture is based on an actual case tried in Louisiana in the 1940s, as detailed in the 2005 book Stone Justice, published by Sarah Hudson-Pierce's Ritz Publications of Shreveport.
