The Rains Came (1939)

Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center, Saturday, September 29, 7:00

Academy Award®-nominated visual effects supervisor Craig Barron and Oscar®-winning sound editor Ben Burtt present a newly restored 35mm print of The Rains Came (1939) and weave a lively and informative presentation about Hollywood special effects.

Barron and Burtt will present rare behind-the-scenes footage and sound recordings and will demonstrate how the film’s visual and sound effects were created.

This presentation caps another trilogy of sorts; Barron and Burtt have hosted two previous effects programs at the Rafael that focused on Hollywood classics: one on The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) that included a live archery demonstration, and the other on Gunga Din (1939) that featured live rifle blasts.
