Christmas may be incidental to this film, but Christmas themes are present throughout. The Rev. Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum) is a religious fanatic who funds his ministry by marrying widows, killing them and taking their money. Sent to prison for car theft, he meets condemned murderer Ben Harper (Peter Graves) who – before being sent to the gallows – confesses to hiding $10,000 in stolen loot and sharing its location only with his children, who he has sworn to secrecy. Released from jail, Powell becomes obsessed with finding the money, romancing Harper’s widow (Shelley Winters), and getting his hands on those kids. A Christian of a very different ilk (Lillian Gish) helps the children to escape his grasp. Not rated. 112 minutes
