THE RAINMAKER [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926

THE RAINMAKER ? 1 A story unusual in theme and likely to interest Australians is that of the Paramount special, ''The Rainmaker' for the novel 'Heaven Bent' by Gerald Beaumont. It tells of the adventures of a jockey supposedly possessed of powers of coaiing rain from tho firma ment at will. The angle of tlie story chancres from the racecourse to a Mexi can border town, where drought and water shortage eaus^ an awful epidemic of fever. Here the forceful acting of thp principals, Willian Collier, Jr., Gcorg'a Hale, Ernest Torrence and Brandon Hurst makes 'Tho Rainin.iker' a drama tic treat. The picture wil] be screened shortly in Queenlsaiid.
