Description by

Under the spell of a wandering charlatan named Starbuck, a lonely ranch girl blossoms into full womanhood. Katharine Hepburn garnered an Oscar nomination as the "believably plain yet magnificently beautiful" tomboy rancher, with Burt Lancaster brilliantly cast in the role of the smooth-talking con man who sells his rainmaking "powers" to unsuspecting, drought-ridden Western towns. Playwright N. Richard Nash meticulously enlarges his hit Broadway play to the big screen without losing any of the earthy, gut-wrenching emotions or the sheer, hilarious fun. The result is a genuinely appealing and beautifully executed romance. A must-see for Hepburn fans.

Product Description:

A charlatan dupes a town into buying his rainmaking services, and a local gal is particularly taken by him. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Actress--Katharine Hepburn.

Plot Synopsis:

A screen adaptation of N. Richard Nash's hit Broadway play. In this cornfed romantic comedy, a poetry-spouting scam artist arrives on a Western ranch claiming he can conjure up rain. But the land isn't the only thing that's dry. The rancher's got a spinster daughter he can't seem to marry off -- that is, until the rainmaker uses his special powers to convince the lady she's got what it takes to win her man.

  • Color by Technicolor. Shot in VistaVision.
