  • 'Night of the Hunter'

    Any thoughts on 'Night of the Hunter' certainly my favourite Mitchum film.

    Not too many films from back then are truely scary, but that one is. He (Bob) was great, such an outlaw. Back in the '50s when the worst thing you would hear about a star was that they had an affair, or hit a reporter(Frank)
    Bob Mitchem was supposed to be a Pot smoker and boy was that bad.
    He was also great in Cape Fear, and so was DeNiro

      Sorry about the late response. I've read Mitchums biography and he certainly tried everything as did Errol Flynn. I think the Black and White photography gave the film a lot of menace.

I dont know how correct it is historically but the over the top acting of Day Lewis as Cutter and Broadbent as the superbly bent mayor was excellent stuff. Decaprio and the other bird who played the love interest were overshadowed...

        In the past, I have mentioned how my monopod has been useful in more ways than normal. The incident with the alligator comes to mind.
