Summer Film Classics: The Night of the Hunter

Not rated, 93 min. Directed by Charles Laughton. Starring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish and Peter Graves.

The great Charles Laughton's only film as a director is a hauntingly beautiful classic. With a screenplay by James Agee, the story has Mitchum playing a larcenous and psychotic religious fanatic who menaces some homeless children and an old woman for their money. (Double bill: All That Heaven Allows.)
