The Scarlet Letter

The Scarlet Letter (1926) - Plot summary: "In Puritan Boston, seamstress Hester Prynne is punished for playing on the Sabbath day; but kindly minister Arthur Dimmesdale takes pity on her. The two fall in love, but their relationship cannot be: Hester is already married to Roger Prynne, a physician who has been missing seven years. Dimmesdale has to go away to England; when he returns, he finds Hester pregnant with their child, and the focus of the town's censure. In a humiliating public ceremony, she is forced to don the scarlet letter A - for adultery - and wear it the rest of her life. Dimmesdale is encouraged by the church fathers to demand of Hester the person with whom she sinned. Written by Gary Dickerson {slug@mail.utexas.edu}"
  • Greta Garbo was an almost daily visitor to the set, in order to be near her friend Lars Hansen, and to speak Swedish to alleviate her homesickness.

  • Miss Gish played her scenes in ‘The Scarlet Letter’ in English, and Hansen in Swedish.

  • Gish learned that her mother had had a stroke in London and her sister, Dorothy, urged her to get there on the first available boat. When she informed Seastrom of the need to finish the film quickly, he created a shooting schedule that crammed two weeks worth of shooting into three days of non-stop work. The crew worked without complaint so that she could finish the film early and catch the earliest possible train to New York.
