Fifteen seconds into this clip comes one of my favorite lines from one of the best films of the last century, Night of the Hunter (1955). The other eight and half minutes is just a bonus 🙂
BEN HARPER: “What religion you profess, preacher?”
HARRY POWELL: “The religion the Almighty and me worked out betwixt us.”
I could go on all day about this film, it is a masterpiece on so many levels. But I’ll spare you the verbiage (at least for now), and encourage anyone who hasn’t yet seen it to get it, and anyone who has to watch it once again. It never disappoints.
As a side note: Interesting how the annotations for this YouTube video were used to let the viewer know that Part 1 of of the film was taken down.
