Who'll Stop the Rain is the 1978 action crime drama adapted from the novel by Robert Stone and directed by Karel Reisz (The French Lieutenant's Woman). John Converse (Michael Moriarty), a correspondent in Vietnam, obliges Ray Hicks (Nick Nolte), a friend from their Marine Corps days, to smuggle five pounds of heroin back into the states for him. Everything seems all set up' A crooked narcotics agent named Anthell (Anthony Zerbe) and a couple of his goons barge in and try to rip off the smack. Hicks escapes in tow with Converse's wife Marge (Tuesday Weld). The heavies capture Converse and demand to know where Ray and Marge have taken this fortune's worth of heroin, but he has no idea. They beat him, shoot him full of drugs, force him back on a red hot stove burner, and dunk him in a bathtub, but it's no use. There follows a cross-country pursuit, from Oakland to Los Angeles to a barren mountain in New Mexico, site of a long-deserted hippie commune and fair grounds. That's where the final shootout takes place, with Ray and Marge on the mountain and Anthell, his goons, and the captive John down below.moreless
