Film series

This is the first image of a new series I'm working on, 
 interpreting classic films.  This one is from the 
Night Of The Hunter, a 1955 film, and the only one directed by
the famous actor Charles Laughton.  The movie is one of the
first American films to fully utilize a wide range of expressionistic
techniques found previously mostly in German expressionist films
such as The Cabinet of Dr Kaligari.  It was a flop on its release,
But became a huge influence on the films of Scosese, Jarmusch,
the Coen Bothers, Tarentino, and many other "expressionistic" 
film makers from the 70's, 80's and 90's.
