Steve - Where are you getting these? I'd love to have that poster!

Just Google Images. Searched for "Night of the Hunter" and found it on the third page of selections.

Might make a nice t-shirt....

You guys continue to amaze me - this is a helluva poster. Shelley was a fun lady to watch, regardless. She was one fantastic villainess on screen when she wanted to be, was a great sex symbol, and boy, did she have moxie off-screen!

This movie, BTW, is one of my faves, and I guess I watched it a little too often - when one of those 100 worst villians lists came out recently, my son immediately proclaimed the Rev. Harry Powell was his choice for No. 1, 'cause he'd scared the kid so badly when he snuck in and watched it once when I had left it on inadvertidly.

On Saturday night, Canadian (Paris-based) pop chanteuse Feist opened her set with an a capella version of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.

Couldn't have been a coincidence...
