The Night of the Hunter – incredibly, the only film the great actor Charles Laughton ever directed – is truly a stand-alone masterwork. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, it 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.
