1started with a neatlittle commercial filmquite funny, but nothing speciaL' The idea oí Charles Laughton making such a film is almost hilarious in its incongruity. ' CODA: A VIEW The Night of the Hunter's triumphs oí poetic cinematography and, as Laughton would say, dramaturgy, are well established.. The acknowledgment oí the work's achievement as a whole, despite the very occasional dissenting voice, is universal, and we have seen something oí how it carne about. 1 should like to end the book with a few personal observations on both form and content in the work They are based on the conviction that most art is the outcome oí human decisions and interactions, rather than the more sublime machinations of the sub- and super-conscious íavoured, particularly, by the French school of criticism..

Whi1e Laughton and Agee were writing the screenplay, in 1954, his reign of terror was coming to an end but its legacy was everywhere. He too had come with a sword to bring destruction on the enemies of the Lord.. 1t is not suggested that Laughton and Agee - nor indeed Grubb - were making a conscious para1lel, but there is a striking resonance. America had just come through a nightmare; bogey-men were by no means the preserve of children's literature. The sequence of Preacher's arrival outside Willa's house is again a very close reproduction of what Grubb origina1lywrote, though the shadows themselves are quite unrealistic (John's shadow could scarcely be as big as Preacher's), as is the sound..

Her untarmshable lmage must prevail. This oí course is one oí the reasons why Laughton final1y cast her; but introducing her at the beginning of the film has. an unbalancing effect on the film's journey.. The other purpose of the tltle sequence is to introduce the notion oí the dream, and indeed the Night of the Hunter ('Though the hunter in the nightl Fills your childish heart with frightl Fear is only a dream'), but this, too, is clumsily done. We are next introduced to the figure of Preacher, bowling along in his jalopy, an old Essex, in jaunty conversation with the Lord, against back-projected footage shotbythe Sanders whichlooks exactly likewhat it is..
