Robert Mitchum is the heart of darkness as Rev Harry Powell, preacher and killer of women, whose lust for gold leads him to Pearl Harper and her brother John, guardians of their jailed father’s stolen loot. Driven by the starkness of German expressionism and shot by legendary Stanley Cortez, Laughton’s film is one of the great film noir classics. Every shot is a masterclass in contrast: looming blacks and piercing whites. It’s the most haunted and dreamlike of all American films, a gothic backwoods ramble with the Devil at its heels.
