Description
The Night Of The Hunter - incredibly, the only film the great actor Charles Laughton ever directed - is truly a standalone masterwork. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, it stars a sublimely sinister Robert Mitchum (Cape Fear, The Friends Of Eddie Coyle) as a traveling preacher named Harry Powell (he of the tattooed knuckles), whose nefarious motives for marrying a fragile widow, played by Shelley Winters (A Place In The Sun, The Diary Of Anne Frank) 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 (Intolerance, Duel In The Sun) and writer James Agee - is cinema's quirkiest rendering of the battle between good and evil.

    Comments about this product:

    As a life-long fan of both Charles Laughton and "The Night of the Hunter," I was delighted to discover this fantastic compendium of material pertaining to the film. The more-than two hours of Laughton directing his cast is wondrous, as are the commentaries and other documentary materials. This is a fitting tribute to one of the most imaginative films ever made.
