Shortly after the release of “The Night of the Hunter”, Laughton and Gish would be briefly together in a TV programme produced by Paul Gregory, “The Day Lincoln Was Shot”, in which some members of the cast and crew of “The Night of the Hunter” would be working as well. Laughton was the narrator of the story and Lillian Gish played Mary Todd (curiously, John Wilkes Booth was played by a young Jack Lemmon).
This programme was an hiatus in the work which Laughton and the Sanders brothers were dpoing in the script of “The Naked And The Dead”. This work was never resumed: in the meantime, “The Night of the Hunter” failed at the box-office. Laughton and Gregory split their partnership. Laughton would never directed again, would never have the chance of working again with Lillian Gish.
