Years before taking the title role in Night of the Hunter, Robert Mitchum played the hunted in this movie that’s more film noir than Western.  While there’s nothing truly spectacular about it, it’s quite excellent in every regard and thoroughly watchable.  A tight script (some of Mitchum’s voiceover monologue is a bit overcooked, but no more so than your average noir), good performances, stark cinematography, a fair-to-good Max Steiner score, dark psychology and a lot of tense moments.  And now I’m definitely feeling some movie burnout, gonna take a break for a few days.  Rating: 8
