    The Night of the Hunter (United Artists, 1955). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Robert Mitchum was in top form headlining this moody film noir co-starring Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish, with an early performance from Peter Graves. But director Charles Laughton's use of light and shadow is perhaps the most impressive aspect of the classic thriller. Sadly, due to the film's poor reception, Laughton vowed never to direct again after its release - ironic too, in that it was Laughton who talked Lillian Gish out of semi-retirement for this film. Mitchum later stated that Charles Laughton was not only his favorite director, but that this was in fact his personal favorite performance out of all the films he had made in his extensive career. Light fold wear. Very Fine on Linen.
