In late-17th-century Massachusetts, a young Puritan woman (Claudette Colbert) tried to keep her flirtations with a antiroyalist Virginian (Fred MacMurray) discreet. When the community becomes inflamed by the infamous witch hunts, however, her clandestine behavior may be enough cause for a death sentence. Gripping period piece co-stars Gale Sondergaard, Beulah Bondi, Bonita Granville, Virginia Weidler. 86 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
