1996's "The Crucible"

Modern Salem derives much revenue from this dark mark of history with wax museums, new age shops and ghost tours. Written by Marilyn Monroe's ex husband, Arthur Miller, **The Crucible** was written to parallel the Salem Witchcraft Trails with Senator Joe McCarthy's blacklisting in the 1950s. Filmed in 1996, **The Crucible** was a box office disappointment, despite a cast headlined by Daniel Day-Lewis, Winona Ryder, Paul Scofield and Bruce Davidson.
