Following a six-year jail sentence for a sadistic sex crime, Max Cady (Mitchum) arrives in a small Southern town to seek revenge on the man responsible for his conviction, Sam Bowden.

While Mitchum's twisted preacher in 'The Night of the Hunter' is a more complex and subtly created character, his swaggering presence in this film has a menacing authority.
