Charles Laughtons sole directorial effort is a childs-eye parable of good versus evil. Robert Mitchum is iconically sinister as the charlatan preacher who visits violence upon a widow Shelley Winters and her two children, whom he believes are concealing a stash of stolen money. A frightening fairy tale writ in expressionist chiaroscuro, Night of the Hunter is a masterpiece of almost folkloric power. BAM
