The Scarlet Letter 1934

The heartbreaking Colleen Moore stars as Hester Prynne, living in Puritan New England in the era of torture and "witch" burnings. She is convicted of adultery after giving birth to a daughter out of wedlock and condemned to wear a scarlet letter "A" on her chest for the rest of her life. Henry Walthall memorably portrays Chillingworth, Hester's long-lost husband who goes mad when he learns of his wife's infidelity and becomes obsessed with seeking revenge on her secret lover.
