Chico the Rain Maker

SOME BOYS keep the shrunken head of ‘Chico’, a sort of shamen, in their tree house. They would then get the head to make it rain for them. Hence the title. Hence the brevity of this entry.

    I remember this film from the Saturday morning film showings at the church in Cardonald Glasgow.
    The character was from a kids film called “The boy with 2 heads
    There was a trailer shown for about a fortnight beforehand.
    The name promised more than the film delivered.Us kids thinking it was a horror.
    Hence on the following Saturday, queues round the block and scuffles and kerfuffles as the “full up” sign went up.

    My brother and I tried to explain this to his son not so long back, even going as far as singing the theme tune (which we both recalled instantly, a plus point surely). I have never seen a look more full of disdain and/ or pity to this day.
