The Night of the Hunter, 1955 ( My Personal Greatest Movie of All Time)


Recommended Posts

Kinda morbid for it to be anyone's all time favorite film ever made, don't you think so? Eh well diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks. :)

p.s. Bah, don't ever put too much stock in what French 'institutes' have to say about anything even when they seem to agree with ye...

Evelyn Varden is great as Icey Spoon. Two scenes seem to conflict. When Powell confides in Icey that his wife had been drinking and walked out on her family, Icey appears to detest alcohol. In the crowd scene when Powell is found to be a murderer, she cries out "Lynch Him." If you look at her in the crowd scene she appears to be inebriated. She was the typical busybody neighbor who would take over and try to run other people's lives. We all know people like her.

I don't see where the scenes conflict,  but just that Icey Spoon is a hypocrite.  Like you said we all know people like her.

Either way,   fine performance by Evelyn Varden.
