The Minister's Black Veil Storyboard
This storyboard does not have a description.
One Sunday morning, Reverend Hooper delivers a sermon while wearing a black veil. Rumors immediately begin circulating among his Puritan parishioners about his reasons for wearing the veil.
That afternoon, Reverend Hooper leads a funeral for a young girl from Milford. His parishioners are struck by the timing and suspect that Reverend Hooper is wearing the veil to hide some secret sin committed while the girl was still alive.
That night, Hooper performs a wedding for a young couple. He catches a glimpse of himself in a mirror and is so terrified by his own appearance that he spills the ceremonial wine on the carpet and rushes out of the church.
Reverend Hooper's fiancé, Elizabeth, begs him to remove the veil. He tells her that the veil is mortal and that, in Heaven, there shall be no barrier between souls. Elizabeth leaves him, frightened by the very idea of the black veil.
At times when sinners are dying, they still cry for Hooper, refusing to yield in death until he comes to them. The veil has a deep influence on tormented souls, who feel the pastor can better sympathize with them.
On his deathbed, Reverend Hooper again refuses to remove the veil. He tells Reverend Clark, a colleague from a neighboring town, that he sees a black veil on the face of everyone he meets. He goes to his grave wearing the veil.
