Synopsis

Mr. Terle, the elderly but lively owner of Joe Terle's Desert Inn of Arizona, houses only two guests, Mr. Smith and Mr. Fremely, who have both been in residence for over 21 years. In the heat, dust and discomfort of a drought, they long for January 29, the day on which Mr. Terle has assured them it will rain. The 29th arrives, but the rain does not. Then, during the hazy light of the evening, Miss Blanche Hillgood's car breaks down in front of the inn; as she plays her harp for them, the magical instrument is metamorphosed, becoming a beautiful young girl whose evocative music and gracefully flowing dance open the heavens, bringing life-giving rain.

Media Reviews

"The power and beauty of Ray Bradbury's short story about three men living out a parched existence in the abandoned hotel of a former gold town in an American desert are grippingly realized …The adaptation, faithful to the original story, soars on the wings of Bradbury's talent for creating atmosphere with lines like, 'The hotel stood like a hollowed dry bone under the very center of the desert sky.'" -The Scotsman
