The Scarlet Letter

Dir. Victor Sjostrom (1927).
America’s greatest silent actress Lillian Gish is Hester Prynne in this surprisingly faithful, silent adaptation of the Hawthorne classic; Swedish director Victor Sjostrom has an obvious affinity for this chilly anti-Puritan morality tale, as for his star whom he would direct to great effect as a hysterical pioneer woman in The Wind.
