The Scarlet Letter
Only Lillian Gish, the ordained "First Lady Of The Silent Screen," could have pushed such a morally challenging script 2SCARLETScarlet The Letter MGM 1927 (4)past the rigid censor board of the American film industry in the Twenties! Gish plays the time-honored role of Hester Prynne, a woman shunned by her puritanical township after a romantic dalliance (and subsequent childbirth) with the village minister. Gish's stamp of approval was enough to send this adaptation of Nathanial Hawthorne's literary classic quickly into a production helmed by prominent Swedish director Victor Sjöström, whose seasoned visual mastery gives the film's rural American locales a richly detailed sheen. As well, the performances by Gish and co-star Lars Hanson are electric, yielding one of the most emotionally tempestuous films of the era. It's a total lovelorn barnburner  culminating in an on-screen embrace so romantically charged, so utterly cathartic that it's bound to set your heart on fire.
