The Night of the Hunter
Cinematographer: Stanley Cortez
Dir. Charles Laughton. 1955, 93 mins. 35mm. With Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish. Acting legend Laughton’s only screen directorial credit is perhaps cinema’s most remarkable one-off. Creepy preacher Henry Powell (a never-more-menacing Mitchum) offers naive widow Willa Harper (Winters) a fresh start, but her kids rightly worry his intentions are less than pure. Part horror film, part fairy tale, The Night of the Hunter is an idiosyncratic, cinematic wonder that feels like no other film, dazzlingly shot by Stanley Cortez.
