The Night of the Hunter


Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Charles Laughton. 1955, 92 mins. DCP. With Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish. “Both Night of the Hunter and Walkabout were movies that Todd recommended we watch to look at great performances by children. Night of the Hunter has long been one of my favorite films, a kind of gothic fairy tale lullaby, with two extraordinary siblings hunted by a nightmarish Robert Mitchum. The kids are saved by the angelic Lillian Gish. Long past her silent movie heyday, she makes it feel as if the history of cinema itself has come to save the children.”—Brian Selznick
