The Night of the Hunter

by

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.”
