Baby the Rain Must Fall Directed by Robert Mulligan

Critics reviews

This 1965 feature marks the second time that director Robert Mulligan and writer Horton Foote collaborated on an adaptation of Foote’s stage drama The Traveling Lady (the first was in 1957, when they created a one-hour version for TV), which might explain why it feels a little too thought-out for its own good. Foote’s metaphors and psychological insights are so clearly delineated that there’s little room for spontaneity, though the actors do what they can with the space they’re given.
