Event Information
CELEBRATING THE CENTENIAL OF ROBERT MITCHUM
Sunday, Aug 20, 2017 4:30 PM
The only movie Charles Laughton directed, this singular masterpiece was criminally ignored in its day. Written by James Agee from the novel by Davis Grubb, with ex- traordinary photography by Stanley Cortez, it is a poetic, even hallucinatory, gem of Southern Gothic, set in the Great Depression and starring Robert Mitchum (at his best) as a charismatic, self-styled preacher who’s really a psychopathic killer of lonely widows. In a tale of almost biblical import, this “false prophet ” pursues two children fleeing with a fortune, only to encounter “the mother of us all,” embodied by the great Lillian Gish. With Shelley Winters. (US 1955) 92 min.
