Crucible, The

Crucible, The (movie)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Based on Arthur Miller's play, The Salem Witch Trials, this 1956 Jean-Paul Sartre French-East German movie (titled Les Sorcières de Salem) was directed by Raymond Rouleau and starred Simone Signoret and Yves Montand. It is also known as The Witches of Salem

. In the film, Yves Montand's character is given an opportunity to escape hanging but refuses to bow down to the judges. There are many parallels to the McCarthy anti-Communist "witch hunts" in the U.S. in the 1950s, which strongly affected Arthur Miller.
