Watch the last 33 minutes of the film
Preview next week
Today the exciting conclusion of Night of the Hunter. Will Harry Powell get away with his crimes as Montressor did, or will he be caught in time? Continue watching for all kinds of irony, see how the director creates various moods for each scene, and look out for those bits about the theme.
Speaking of theme, remember the quote in the beginning, "Beware of false prophets in sheep's clothing, for really they are ravening wolves." How does that fit with what you know about the film now?
Next week we will start by collecting evidence about irony, mood and theme in the film. Think about what you want to use as your examples.
Then we begin working on our comparative analysis of "Cask of Amontillado" and Night of the Hunter.
I am re-showing Night of the Hunter at lunch today, Monday and Tuesday. If you missed any part of the film or just want to see it again you are welcome to bring your lunch and watch it here.
