The "Night of the Hunter" Paperback
by Simon Callow
Part of the BFI Film Classics series
This is an examination of "The Night of the Hunter", Charles Laughton's only outing as a film director.
It looks at the symbolism of the piece, at Willa, her throat cut sitting in the Model-T Ford, and the Preacher, a silhouetted threat on the horizon.

Review by rsplenda477
A clever criticism of Charles Laughton's film masterpiece. The only movie Laughton ever directed is cleverly dissected by Simon Callow in an extraordinary review.
