“Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms,” sing both shotgun-toting child protector Lillian Gish and lurking psycho preacher Robert Mitchum, sporting a pocket switchblade and fingers tattooed “Love” and “Hate.” Fairy tale and nightmare combine in Laughton’s sole directorial effort, written by legendary critic and screenwriter James Agee.
