‘Night of the Hunter’ to be shown at the library
GREENFIELD — The Hancock County Public Library, 900 W. McKenzie, will present “The Night of the Hunter” at 6:45 p.m. Oct. 22. This 1955 horror film stars Robert Mitchum as psychopathic preacher Harry Powell, arrested for a minor offense in a small West Virginian town.
His cellmate, Ben Harper (Peter Graves), who faces the death penalty, confides that he has hidden $10,000 from a bank robbery.
When Powell is released, Harper already has been hanged, so the preacher tracks down his widow and children in an attempt to get his hands on the loot. Register at hcplibrary.org.
