Movie Matinee – The Rainmaker
Thursday, September 14th , 2017
Movie Running Time: 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Burt Lancaster turns in one of the most colorful performances of his career as a wandering charlatan named Starbuck “The Rainmaker”. Katharine Hepburn is equally wonderful as Lizzy Curry, a lonely ranch girl who blossoms under his spell when their paths cross!

Starring Burt Lancaster and Katharine Hepburn.
Co-starring Wendell Corey, Lloyd Bridges, Earl Holliman and Cameron Prud’homme.

Katharine Hepburn is the believably plain yet magnetically beautiful tomboy rancher living with her father and two brothers on their 1913 drought-stricken Kansas farm. And Burt Lancaster is brilliantly cast in the role of the smooth-talking con man who sells his rainmaking “powers” to unsuspecting, drought-ridden Western towns. He strikes a deal with the family to bring them a much-needed downpour and in the process slowly convinces Lizzy that she is a lovely and desirable woman. The result is a genuinely appealing and beautifully executed romance, mixed with sheer, hilarious fun!

Colorful take-home flyers of the current month’s movies are also available in the ISC lobby.
