A movie way, way before its time, The Night of The Hunter did not get any credit until Spike Lee stole one of it's lines. When this movie first came out director Charles Laughton was so pissed about it's reception that he never directed again. What a shame because if he was still alive he could see the respect that this movie enjoys today.
I asked my grandmother about this movie and she said it was a dirty movie. I guess back then a movie about sexual obsession could be defined like that. This movie is not dirty but it is a bit taboo. It centers around a 14 year old girl and her sexual endeavor with her step father. Great movie, but like many other early Kubrick movies falls by the way side.
