In his single directorial effort, Charles Laughter accomplished more in one film than most directors could hope for in a lifetime. Night of the Hunter is a hauntingly original and beautifully shot film — one that cemented Mitchum’s role as a villain for years to come. This rare US insert poster features a young Shelly Winters and her fateful embrace of Robert Mitchum’s serial killer preacher character, Harry Powell. This poster also features Mitchum’s famous finger tattoos — LOVE and HATE — which Spike Lee re-used to great effect in his break out hit, Do the Right Thing.
