Double Feature with THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER

(1962) dir J. Lee Thompson w/Mitchum, Gregory Peck, Polly Bergen, Lori Martin [105 min; DCP]
Another of Mitchum’s great antagonist roles, here he plays the brutish ex-con Max Cady who holds lawyer Sam Bowden (Peck) personally responsible for a conviction that landed him in jail for 8 years. Released from prison, Cady systematically terrorizes Bowden and his family in a campaign that ends in a deadly confrontation.

“Everything is sharp and direct. Menace quivers in the picture like a sneaky electrical charge. And Mr. Mitchum plays the villain with the cheekiest, wickedest arrogance and the most relentless aura of sadism that he has ever managed to generate.” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times (4/19/1962)
