Corrected entry: Rudy goes to Cleveland to get depositions under oath from four employees of Great Benefits. He gets quite angry when he realizes that the first two he calls had been fired and can't be heard. The third one is Everett Lufkin who wrote the infamous last letter to Dot Black. Rudy says that he is going to get the deposition from him and pack up and leave after that. We never find out who the fourth one is and why Rudy is not interested in getting his/her deposition. (01:01:55)


Correction: Not a mistake since Rudy is still green around the gills as a lawyer. He could have forgotten since he was so upset that he is getting the run-a-round from Great Benefit's lawyers.

William Bergquist

Continuity mistake: One morning Rudy wakes up from the clattering noises Ms. Birdie is making when she unloads a number of biggish garden tools from a wheelbarrow. The camera cuts to Rudy who is trying to sleep while we hear her unloading, then back to Ms. Birdie where the number of tools on the wheelbarrow has gone up again. (00:22:20)

Rudy Baylor: Sworn in by a fool and vouched for by a scoundrel. I'm a lawyer at last.

More quotes from The Rainmaker

Chosen answer: I don't know why, but he asked not to be in the credits.

Josh Appelbaum

Answer: I don't know how prevalent this is (or how it actually works), but one possibility would be that he was under contract with a particular agency (or company/ business) and could only receive credit for work performed under this contract and/or no other agency could benefit from using him. His name cannot show up in something he did outside of that contract.
