I remember the rain in California -- pretty rare in LA when I lived there. About 3 or 4 days in January now and then, every year or so. Best movie to rent to see great scary California rain -- Sunset Boulevard. Young screenwriter ends up in the clutches of an older woman (fading star). William Holden and Gloria Swanson. The scene when he looks out on the rain from the little bungalow window she keeps him in -- nothing short of frightening. He realizes he's being kept like a canary and may never get out. They use water in that movie in some very interesting ways. Remember the first scene? I won't tell -- go rent it.
