Robert Mitchum Thrillers

Out of the Past

February 7, 2014
Out of the Past (1958)

A private eye escapes his past to run a gas station in a small town, but it catches up with him and he has to return to the big city with its noirish danger, corruption and duplicitous dames. It was filmed in Bridgeport and Reno as well as Lake Tahoe. The film was directed by Jacques Tourneur and stars Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Rhonda Fleming and Kirk Douglas. One of the classics in the noir canon.

Night of the Hunter

February 14, 2014
Night of the Hunter (1955)

The story of a religious fanatic who shares a cell with a convicted robber and, upon his release, marries the robber’s gullible young widow whose children are more than reluctant to tell him where their real father hid the $10,000 he’d stolen. It was directed by Charles Laughton and stars Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish and Peter Graves. An overlooked film that has never gotten the attention it deserves

Cape Fear

February 21, 2014
Cape Fear (1968)

A disturbed man, released from prison after serving an eight year sentence, begins to stalk the wife and daughter of the lawyer who testified against him. When the lawyer’s attempts to seek protection for his family fail, he resorts to more violent tactics in this escalating game of nerves. Directed by J. Lee Thompson, it stars Robert Mitchum, Gregory Peck, Polly Bergen and Telly Savalas. A pulp thriller to be reckoned with that the Scorcese/De Niro remake can’t hold a candle to.
