Synopsis: Hester Prynne's adultery is exposed when she gives birth to a girl after more than a year of living without her husband. As her punishment, she is forced to wear the titular crimsin letter.

Reaction: There are a few attempts at humor to lighten the atmosphere, some working better than others. On the whole, however, this story is told well enough to not really need them.

Personal Rating: 7/10
