The Night Of The Hunter


“Would you like me to tell you the little story of right hand, left hand? The story of good and evil? H-A-T-E. It was with this left hand that old brother Cain struck the blow that laid his brother low. L-O-V-E. You see these fingers, dear hearts? These fingers has veins that run straight to the soul of man -- the right hand, friends, the hand of love.”


FLIX PIX Staff Selection: One of the greatest films of all time directed by Charles Laughton in 1955. Robert Mitchum is pure evil as a religious fanatic who is also a serial killer. Shelley Winters is brilliant as the naive widow and Lillian Gish as the light to Mitchum's dark. The child actors are also brilliant in this film. - Julie


DIRECTOR: Charles Laughton RELEASE YEAR: 1955

RATING: NR

RUNTIME: 93 min.

CAST: With Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish, James Gleason, Evelyn Varden, Peter Graves, Don Beddoe, Billy Chapin, Sally Jane Bruce, and Gloria Castillo


DESCRIPTION: A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, The Night Of The Hunter stars a sublimely sinister Robert Mitchum as a traveling preacher named Harry Powell (he of the tattooed knuckles), whose nefarious motives for marrying a fragile widow, played by Shelley Winters, are uncovered by her terrified young children. Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humor, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic -- also featuring the contributions of actress Lillian Gish and writer James Agee -- is cinema’s most eccentric rendering of the battle between good and evil. (The Criterion Collection)
