Heaven and Hell To Play With : The Filming of The Night of the Hunter
By Preston Neal Jones
Preston Neal Jones uncovers the fascinating inside story of the making of this film, one of the American Film Institutes's 100 Greatest Thrillers. Every aspect is revealed of the film's development and production – casting, design, shooting, scoring, and editing – to the profound disappointment upon its release. Heaven and Hell To Play With : The Filming of The Night of the Hunter is the result of over a decade of archival research and interviews with a dozen key people associated with the film, including author Davis Grubb, producer Paul Gregory, actors Robert Mitchum and Lillian Gish and cinematographer Stanley Cortez. Their oral histories, along with numerous artifacts and film stills, are here deftly assembled into an account that is as compelling as the movie it celebrates.
