Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

The Rainmaker (1956)

BBB.5

(out of 5)


An unmarried daughter is such serious business that in this film it’s the cause of major drama.  is excellent as the vulnerable woman in question, whose spinster state has her loving father () worried about her future. Enter smooth con man () who woos the lady into a love affair and convinces her to accept no substitute. There’s some great acting, but like most theatrical adaptations of the period it’s a bit too obvious that this film is based on a play.
