Coming in late March 2020
Arthur Miller’s acclaimed 1953 play with an all-star cast is finally available!
Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’ is regarded as a central work in the canon of American drama.
Written in response to the Congressional investigations into American Communism in the 1950’s, it is a semi-fictional dramatic play intended to parallel the Salem witch trials of the late 1600’s. In it, the town becomes obsessed with an igniting incident where a group of young girls are caught dancing nude in the forest with a male slave. This leads to accusations of practicing witchcraft, which, in turn, leads to the trials which see the town devolve into chaos.
This version was produced in 1967 and garnered three Emmy nominations.
The acclaimed performance features George C. Scott, Colleen Dewhurst, Melvin Douglas, Henry Jones, Will Geer, Tuesday Weld, Cathleen Nesbitt, Catherine Burns, Louise Stubbs and Barnard Hughes.
“This handsomely mounted tale of witch hunts, religious persecution, sexual revenge and social hysteria in 17th-century Salem, Mass., still possesses the power to stir up wrenching emotion through its elemental crises and conflicts.” – Variety
The Crucible continues to be required reading in most high schools across America.
1967 / 119 minutes / color / Standard Definition 3×4 presentation / Directed by Alex Segal
