Description by OLDIES.com:

Set in mythical Ranchipur, India, this visually thrilling epic is in the classic tradition of films about the aftermath of nature's fury. When lashing monsoon rains, massive flooding and a destructive earthquake strike, a handsome surgeon, Major Rama Safti (Tyrone Power) and his consort, the beautiful Lady Esketh (Myrna Loy), must look deep within themselves to rebuild their lives - and their souls.

Product Description:

Myrna Loy shines as Lady Edwina Esketh, a young woman stranded in India who becomes the center of attention for a local aristocrat attempting to win her heart in this sweeping MGM romance. Tom Ransome (George Brent), a well-born womanizer, has been living a carefree life in India for several years. He and his closest friend, Major Rama Safti (Tyrone Power), spend leisure time contemplating India's uncertain future. But the tranquillity of Tom's simple life is disturbed by Fern Simon (Brenda Joyce), the flirtatious daughter of American missionaries. Fern wants Tom to help her escape her sheltered life by creating a sexual scandal. Later that night, at the maharajah's palace party, Tom sees Edwina, an old girlfriend who is now the titled wife of Lord Albert Esketh (Nigel Bruce). But no sooner are they reunited than Lady Edwina is up to her usual tricks. Attracted to Rama Safti, she pursues him even though Tom warns that her that Rama is completely dedicated to his medical practice. When a devastating natural disaster hits, everyone must reevaluate what is really important to them. Based on the novel by Louis Bromfield, THE RAINS CAME features dazzling Oscar-winning special effects, an outstanding cast, and solid direction from the always-dependable Clarence Brown.
