      I remember seeing his movie a long time ago. After seeing it again, it remains an intriguing parallel of human emotions and the risks one takes in life and love.

        Excellent story with a really geat cast. Exotic, seductive Mrna Loy, solid leading man George Brent and the wonderful movie icon, Tyrone Power bring lots of emotion to their roles and are a pleasure to watch. Very effective special effects when rains come and disaster happens. Loaded with a cast of great supporting players and overall production values. Great classic Hollywood movie. Love it more each time I watch it.

        Comments about this product:

        I saw this on black & white TV yrs. ago, but was'nt as good as i remembered it. Even though I always liked Tyrone Power as an actor he was kinda wasted as an Indian doctor here. The acting was fairly good, but the 1955 remake with Richard Burton, Lana Turner, & Fred McMurray was much much better! Unusual to have the "remake" better than the original.

          Comments about this product:

          Myrna Loy and Tyrone Power as lovers in colonial India are beautiful together. This is a story about the transformative power of love. Loy 's Lady Esquith is floating along in a world of discontent when she encounters old beau played by George Brent at a party. After a brief seduction they both return to the salon where her husband is playing cards with the Maharajah and his guests. Loy sees Dr. Safti / Power and decides on seduction. During the course of the movie she falls deeply in love and becomes selfless during the health crisis resulting from the devistating rains that have destroyed the town. A parallel transformation has taken place in the life of the hard drinking nere-do-well George Brent character after a young woman falls in love with him. Fine atmosphere surrounds all this loving and longing. It 's a lovely film with fine performances. An absolute gem!
