Robert Charles Durman Mitchum was a film actor, author, composer and

American screen legends of all time. He appeared in Charles Laughton’s
only film as director, The Night of the Hunter (1955). Mitchum also starred
in Thunder Road (1958), Cape Fear (1962), and the Howard Hawks western
El Dorado (1966). Robert Mitchum recorded a song he had written for the
film Thunder Road, titled “The Ballad of Thunder Road”. The country-styled
song became a modest hit for Mitchum, reaching #69 on the Billboard Pop
Singles Chart.
