Set in a drought-ridden rural town during the depression, The Rainmaker tells the story of a pivotal hot summer day in the life of Lizzie Curry (Katharine Hepburn). Lizzie keeps house for her father and two brothers on the family cattle ranch. As their farm languishes under the devastating drought, Lizzie’s family are more concerned about her marriage prospects than their dying cattle. Even the town sheriff, J.S. File (Wendell Corey), will not take a chance on plain Lizzie. However, the arrival of a charming con-man, Bill Starbuck (Burt Lancaster), promising to bring rain in exchange for $100, sets off a series of events which enable Lizzie to see herself in a new light.
