The Night of the Hunter (1955)

A great movie.
Directed by:
Charles Laughton
Robert Mitchum (at his best)
Shelley Winters
Lillian Gish
Walter Schumann

This is a bit of a desecration, but this video is four scenes from the children's river journey. This video cuts out the scenes that don't have the children's musical themes.

Thanks to a question in the Comments section, I will now add that the song sung by Pearl at the beginning of this video is called "Pearl's Dream." That is according to the track listing from the soundtrack CD.

[The soundtrack CD is interesting in that the clips one can hear on Amazon include what sounds like a narration of the movie (not used in the movie, of course) by Charles Laughton himself. What a great voice, great actor, and, in his sole attempt, great director. It was very intereting to read about Laughton and his work on the movie Spartacus, especially his jealousy of Olivier.]
