    Charles Laughton Directs
    Painstakingly assembled over a 20-year period by UCLA film preservationist Robert Gitt, Charles Laughton Directs The Night of the Hunter might well be the most intimate look any of us will ever have into a director's mind and craft. Because Laughton left the camera rolling between takes while filming The Night of the Hunter, over eight hours of rushes exist. Many of these show Laughton providing extensive coaching to his actors; others are alternate versions of key sequences. (obelistenroute.com)
