Maid of Salem (movie)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Movie starring Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray, made in 1937 and directed and produced by Frank Lloyd. It is set in Salem, Massachusetts, at the time of the witch trials. Barbara Clarke (Colbert) falls in love with adventurer Roger Coverman (MacMurray), causing a scandal. Ann Goode, a young girl, pretends to be possessed to show that Barbara is a witch. Barbara is tried and sent to be burned at the stake (even though no one was burned in New England) but is saved by Coverman, who proves the accusations are false.
