    Great theme that shows it is religion and its zealous followers that creates its own devils, pointing the blame at non-existant threats in order to prop itself up. Claudette Colbert is superb as the ahead-of-her-time woman who must bear the brunt of Puritanital superstitious beliefs. For once, Fred MacMurray isn't the best choice to play the male lead, but then the character and his relationship with Colbert isn't that well developed to begin with. The theme of the film is more powerful than the story itself but despite its shortcomings it is a movie worth watching.

    This may very well be Claudette Colbert's best dramatic performance, with SO PROUDLY WE HAIL coming in a close second. The courtroom scene near the end of this picture is must-see. Fred MacMurray seems slightly miscast, and it may've been stronger with Fredric March or someone else in the male lead. But Colbert and MacMurray's chemistry more than make up for any deficiencies. But the real star is the story. It's a very chilling account of a woman denied her own basic rights and suspected of the worst in human nature. It shows that women were not allowed to express themselves as free sexual beings.

    Good sets, nicely produced but lacking in period detail. It is entertaining in a very Hollywoodized sort of way. Good cast. Claudette Colbert is always worth watching.
