Baby the Rain Must Fall (1965)

Henry Thomas is out on parole after serving time in prison; he is a wannabe rockabilly lead singer in a band and has a wife and young daughter. His wife Georgette, and his young daughter Margaret Rose unexpectedly come to a small Texas town to live with him. Things are complicated even more when Henry’s foster mother pushes him to go to night school to earn a living instead to pursuing a music career. Against her wishes, he wants to sing and be like Elvis Presley. But his hot temper and constant fights jeopardize that and Georgette’s wish for them to have a happy life together as a family. Both McQueen and Remick give incredible performances in this little gem. Starring Steve McQueen, Lee Remick, Don Murray, Kimberley Block 8/10
