Movie Info

In the Ohio wilderness during pioneer times, widower David Harvey (William Holden) wants a wife to help rear his young son (Gary Gray). He purchases indentured servant Rachel (Loretta Young) for $18, and they are soon wed. Unsurprisingly, the three don't make a happy family. Harvey only views the marriage as a convenience, while his son resents his new mother. But when Harvey's friend (Robert Mitchum) takes a liking to his new wife, he realizes he might feel something for Rachel after all.

Audience Reviews for Rachel and the Stranger

  • Jul 22, 2014
    A predictable movie. A widower needs a women to help run his farm, so "buys" one (by paying off her debt) and treats her like dirt. Of course she is everything the widower ever wanted, and they all live happily everafter.
