Leaning on the everlasting arms

If you only ever direct one movie, might as well make it a good one, such as Charles Laughton's 'Night of the Hunter', starring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish. A classic thriller, with Mitcham as a psychopathic and criminally-minded preacher, intent on discovering where Winters' dead husband hid the proceeds of a bank robbery, a secret known only to young John and Pearl... Luckily for them, kind-hearted widow Lillian Gish, whilst leaning on Jesus, is shrewd enough to keep a loaded Winchester handy, when the preacher comes a-calling.
