Classic Film Fashion #143: Robert Mitchum styles a cut-throat fiend in a string tie for Night of the Hunter (1955).

Forget the knuckle tattoos, what really spells out a sinister vibe from the so-called holy man is that string tie. Not only is it shady, it looks like he could whip it off and strangle you with it in a heart beat. A man in a string tie is just the type to not have sexy times on the wedding night, while planning to kill you off instead.
