The teaming of Burt Lancaster and Katharine Hepburn adds considerable weight to this entertaining period romance. Lancaster is the charismatic con-man who pretends that he has the power to bring rain to a drought-stricken farming community in 1913 Kansas. He's not fooling everyone but as she worries about becoming an old maid, Hepburn's unmarried farmgirl is just glad to have him around. Writer N. Richard Nash adapts his own stage farce.
