Film Noir: The Night of the Hunter


Film Noir is French for "Dark Movie." It is a genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace made popular in the 1940's.

We're going to play the Film Noir classic THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER starring Robert Mitchum and Shelley Winters. We would LOVE it if you could come and would HATE it if you missed it.

The Rev. Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum) is a religious fanatic and serial killer who targets women who use their sexuality to attract men. Serving time in prison for car theft, he meets condemned murderer Ben Harper (Peter Graves), who confesses to hiding $10,000 in stolen loot. Released from jail, Powell is obsessed with finding the money, and he tracks down Harper's widow, Willa (Shelley Winters), and her two children, John (Billy Chapin) and Pearl (Sally Jane Bruce).
