110 in the Shade

This is N. Richard Nash’s adaptation of his romantic comedy, The Rainmaker.  The plot  focuses on Lizzie Curry, a spinster living on a ranch in the American Southwest and her relationships with local sheriff File, a cautious divorcé who fears being hurt again, and the charismatic con man Bill Starbuck, posing as a rainmaker who promises the locals he can bring relief to the drought-stricken area.
