The only film to be directed by Charles Laughton, 'The Night of the Hunter' was critically panned on its release but is hugely revered now and was Robert Mitchum's personal favourite. Set in Thirties rural American South, Mitchum stars as the psychopathic preacher, Harry Powell (with LOVE and HATE tattooed on either hand), who is arrested for a minor offence in a small West Virginian town. His cell mate, Ben Harper (Peter Graves), who faces the death penalty, confides that he has hidden $10,000 from a bank robbery. When Powell is released Harper has already been hanged, so the Preacher tracks down his widow and children in an attempt to get his hands on the loot.
