Overview

This faithful adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1851 novel about a woman who is forced to wear a scarlet letter A on her bosom because she has an illicit affair is a damning depiction of Puritan life in 17th Century Salem, Massachusetts. When her husband Roger (Henry B. Walthall in the same role he played in the 1926 version) is declared dead after being missing for years, Hester Prynne (Colleen Moore in her last film) falls into the arms of Reverend Dimmesdale (Hardie Albright). She delivers a child out of wedlock and is tortured by the prudish residents of her town when they ostracize her from the community and taunt her as she tries to raise her child alone. The reverend wants to let everyone know that he is the father, but the pious Hester refuses to let him shame his name. To make matters worse, Roger returns and vows revenge for his wife's misdeeds. THE SCARLET LETTER is a penetrating examination of the devastation of Puritanism on the human soul and the evils of intolerance in 17th-century Massachusetts.
