Movies: “Baby the Rain Must Fall”

June 27, 1963 - Steve McQueen and Lee Remick have been signed for the film “Baby the Rain Must Fall.” The studio is Columbia, the producer Alan J. Pakula, the director Robert Mulligan, and the author Horton Foote, who is adapting his own 1954 stage play, “The Traveling Lady.” McQueen has an unreleased movie already completed for Pakula and Mulligan — “Love With the Proper Stranger” — with Natalie Wood as his co-star. In the story of “Baby,” a woman (Remick) and her young daughter (Kimberly Block) head to a Texas town where the girl's irresponsible, hotheaded, immature father (McQueen) has just been released from prison on parole. Foote won an Oscar this year for his screen adaptation of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
