Daniel Emery Taylor,
In reality, Governor Phips was only 41 at the time of the Salem Witch Trials. The film depicts him as obviously much older. See more »
You're frightening the children.
They should be frightened! An innocent woman died today, because of me! And you! A man died today because he opposed you. Opposing you is not a crime before God!
Stop it! Stop it!
I will stop it! Even if it means I hang for it... I will stop this.

OK.. Shirley Maclaine is a great actress...this movie confirms that.
First.... I can't believe this is a made for TV movie... seems too well acted, too many great actors, and set design/period too well done, for a "made for TV stamp" to be on this movie.
I never thought much about Shirley MacLaine.... just as a has-been sex symbol, and fluff actress (like early Natalie Wood). But when I saw this movie....WOW... she sheds all vanity and modesty, and delivers a powerful performance worthy of an (other??) Oscar. Piousness, Humbleness, sympathetic...all the qualities I thought this actress was not (didn't she do a Las Vegas show recently??)... she played all this, so movingly.
Peter Ustinov was at his best, too, playing a villain, yet showing his character as more complex, who feels sorrow at what he does, but still metes out his brand of misplaced judgment.
As high a drama as this was, I noted much of the movie as historically accurate enough, making this a great movie. On par with "Judgment at Nuremburg" (another star-clogged movie, that ended up being a great success).
