Rachel and the Stranger Reviews
David and his son live on a small farm in Ohio on their own after the loss of David's wife. David decides to marry an indentured servant he purchases so his son can have a proper upbringing with schooling, home cooked meals, and a woman presence. He doesn't initially treat her as a wife, but when a rival visits the farm and meets with his wife, David gets his act together and begins acting like they're married...but it may be too late.
"Liquor makes you thirsty."
Norman Foster, director of Davey Crocket and the River Pirates, Mr. Moto's Last Warning, The Great Sex War, Davey Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier, and Indian paint, delivers Rachel and the Stranger. The storyline for this picture is above average and the characters play off each other very well. The cast delivers awesome performances and includes Loretta Young, William Holden, Robert Mitchum, and Gary Gray.
"Two grown men fighting like a couple of wild Indians."
I came across this all star cast in a western on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and had to DVR it. This was very entertaining and I loved all three main stars. They played off each other well and the script was pretty well written. I recommend seeing this once.
"I hope you're loaded. I hope you know what you're doing."
Gary Gray was so cute!
