Rudy: Everything I’ve ever seen tells me that this girl is a loser, scarred and broken and maybe even dangerous, but I’ve never really seen anyone like her before, and instead of running away, all I want to do is protect her.
Every lawyer, at least once in every case, feels himself crossing a line that he doesn’t really mean to cross… it just happens… And if you cross it enough times it disappears forever. And then you’re nothin but another lawyer joke. Just another shark in the dirty water.
Katharine Hepburn and Burt Lancaster in The Rainmaker (1956)
I finally watched this wonderful little film after months of searching for it. Let me just say, Burt and Kate were magnificent in it. So believable. After watching this I realized why I love Katharine Hepburn so much. It’s because of her raw emotions and the way she gets so into her characters. Just wonderfully wonderful.
