They Abide and They Endure

Just a quick heads-up that one of the most beautiful and perfect films ever filmed, 1955's The Night of the Hunter -- which was actor Charles Laughton's single directorial effort -- has been released onto 4K blu-ray today by the fine folks at Kino Lorber. Buy it right here -- Amazon's got it on sale for 28 bucks at the moment. This is one of those movies that I will buy over and over and over again with every upgrade that comes along -- I have the already-gorgeous Criterion blu, but I don't know if I'll be able to resist this. Shelley Winters floating corpse in glorious 4K? Who could possibly resist such wonders???

It is truly one of the GREAT movies. It's a shame Charles Laughton didn't live to see his sole movie gain worldwide respect.
