"The Pavilion on the Links" (1880) is a short-story by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was first published in Cornhill Magazine 42-43 (Sept-Oct 1880). A revised version was included in The New Arabian Nights (1882).

The story was considered by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1890 as "the high-water mark of [Stevenson’s] genius" and "the first short story in the world’". Along with a number of other stories it was collected in a volume entitled The New Arabian Nights in 1882. This collection is seen as the starting point for the history of the English short story by Barry Menikoff.


The White Circle, a silent film, was released in 1920, starring Spottiswoode Aitken as Bernard Huddlestone, Janice Wilson as Clara Huddlestone, Harry Northrup as Northmour, and John Gilbert as Frank Cassilis.

The Pavilion, a direct-to-video release, came out in 2004, starring Craig Sheffer as Frank Cassilis, Patsy Kensit as Clara Huddlestone, Richard Chamberlain as Huddlestone, and Daniel Riordan as Northmour.
