Editor's NoteBABY, THE RAIN MUST FALL: Henry Thomas (Steve McQueen), a rockabilly singer on parole for stabbing another man, tries to settle down with his wife, Georgette (Lee Remick), and their daughter. But tough times and Thomas's old grudge against the woman who raised him conspire to ruin his dream of becoming a successful songwriter. Horton Foote's screenplay from his own stage play THE TRAVELING LADY graces this story of a man at odds with himself who is unable to resist destroying his family. Lee Remick glows with quiet strength as a Southern woman and wife determined to see the bright side of things, and to hold on to hope with all her strength.THE WAR LOVER: Steve McQueen is Buzz Rickson, a B-17 pilot during World War II. Rickson's brashness serves him well during wartime, but he feels out of place when he gets back to everyday civilian life. His more mild-mannered copilot, Bo Bolland (Robert Wagner), however, lives only to get through the war to resume his life with his girl, Daphne (Shirley Anne Field). This wartime character study is based on the novel by John Hersey, who also wrote the screenplay.
