||Synopsis: David Harvey is a widower with a young son, Davey. They live on an isolated Ohio farm during the pioneer days. He wants his son to be raised in the manner his wife would have wanted - with proper schooling, Bible study and proper manners. Rachel, an indentured servant, is sold to David. David then marries her in order that little Davey would have a mother to properly raise him. David shows no real affection towards Rachel since this is a marriage of convenience. This all changes when Jim, a friend of the family comes for a visit. During his stay, David sees that there is more to Rachel than just being a "bonds woman", especially when Jim takes a liking to her. This awaken new feelings in David for Rachel. Written by Kelly

This is a film that for most of its running time has no other players
than the three adult leads and a child. The players had better be good
for this one. Fortunately they are and Rachel and the Stranger has a
good quiet charm about it.
The title role is played by Loretta Young. She was a year past her
Oscar winning performance in The Farmer's Daughter and really at the
top of her game. Rachel is a bondservant who is bought by widower
William Holden to help out at the family farm, bring back a feminine
touch to the place and help raise his son, Gary Gray. Rachel is bought
for "eighteen dollars and owing four" by Holden, but frontier
proprieties being what they were, Holden has to marry her.
But she's no wife, she's bought and paid for help, until Holden's
friend Robert Mitchum shows up and starts looking at her as a desirable
woman. Now Holden starts thinking along those lines and the fun begins.
Holden and Mitchum both do very well in typical roles for both at the
time. Bill Holden called this his "smiling jim" period which ended with
Sunset Boulevard a year later.
Mitchum gets to sing in Rachel and the Stranger and even cut a couple
of records of the songs he sings from the film. Not bad for Bob, among
the many accomplishments of that complex and talented man was as a
singer and songwriter. He didn't do it often enough in movies.
But the movie really turns on Loretta Young's performance. She strikes
just the right note as the bondwoman who helps make the whole lot of
them a family again.
The movie is also a good depiction of frontier Ohio. An Indian attack
is part of the problems the quartet faces and the Shawnees were very
active there until the Battle of Fallen Timbers which took place in
1795. Figure the action to be taking place slightly before that.
A nice entertaining film.
