Night of the Hunter

TCM honored Lillian Gish on her birthday a week and a half ago and, although they played a few of her talkies, they didn't get as recent as Night of the Hunter. The reason is that the programmers wanted to save it for this month's Friday night look at thrillers. It is indeed one of the great thrillers, and it's airing tonight at 8:00 PM ET. It's been a while since I mentioned Dragonwyck, a Gene Tierney/Vincent Price movie that follows at 10:00 PM. The final thriller of the night (although I'm not certain I'd call it a thriller) is Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca, at midnight.
