Grab the popcorn and douse the lights!

Tonight on Turner Classic Movies, one of capmconnundrum's (and my) Halloween favorites is playing at 7 p.m. CST, "The Night of the Hunter":

There is much of interest to note about this little gem, such as Lillian Gish's wonderful performance as the matron of a safe haven, and the fact that this was Charles Laughton's only directorial attempt. Apparently he was so discouraged by the film's poor showing at the box office that he never tried it again, which is a darn shame.
