The Night of the Hunter
Harper & Brothers, New York 1953 - First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with the slightest of rubbing.Inscribed by the author soon afte rpublication: "Kindest personal regards to my good friend Bob Carlitz, Davis Grubb. March 18, 1954". Basis for the memorable film directed by Charles Laughton and featuring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish, and magnificent camera work by Stanley Cortez. The script is credited to James Agee, who died a few months after the film was released, but reportedly Laughton, dissatisfied with Agee's work, rewrote it himself from scratch. Though now considered a classic, upon release the unusual and unique film was a critical and financial failure, and Laughton never directed again. A superb copy. Signed copies of the trade edition are much less common than the publisher signed presentation issue. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
