The Night of the Hunter
Dir. Charles Laughton (1955) One of the best movies about the resilience of children, Laughton’s sole directorial debut effort from 1955 features Robert Mitchum as a sociopath pursuing a brother and sister for a stash of stolen money. The tykes are taken in by Lillian Gish, who famously declares, “It’s a hard world for little things.”
