THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, 1955, Park Circus, 93 min. Dir. Charles Laughton. Robert Mitchum is astonishing as a wandering sociopathic preacher who uses his fire-and-brimstone fundamentalism to mask his schemes to bilk money from gullible yokels and when that doesn’t work, to blithely rob and murder. Puritanical Shelley Winters, left alone with her son and daughter after husband Peter Graves is sent to jail for robbery, is a perfect target for smooth-talking Mitchum, who has gotten wind of the hidden loot. With Lillian Gish.
