Night of The Hunter
US 1955
Director: Charles Laughton

Robert Mitchum comm ands the screen as Harry Powell, a dangerous con man looking to relieve the recently widowed Willa (Shelley Winters) of the $10,000 fortune that her bank robber husband died protecting. Willa's two young children quickly become his prey when he discovers that only they know where the money is hidden. Simultaneously chilling and surreal, Laughton's only directorial effort is a landmark of the genre and an acting tour de force for Mitchum and Winters. Silent screen star Lillian Gish also makes a memorable appearance as Mitchum's uncanny foil. (93 min)
