  • Nov 12, 2020
    An interestingly layered tale of Brit aristocratic dissipation and redemption as two old school globetrotters (Myrna Loy & George Brent), both bored to tears with the roles their positions ask them to play, bored with their wealth and what it brings, bored with their sophistication, bored even with using each other, both find a shot at personal salvation when a couple of natural disasters devastate the godforsaken outback they happen to find themselves in. Good performances carry the tale of two cads climbing out of their self-made tenements.

    Have to give this one 5 stars as its an excellent B&W movie, about life in India. Myma Loy plays Lady Edwina Esketh who is married to Nigel Bruce (Watson Sherlock Holmes) who playes her husband and is very mean. Meanwhile George Brent plays Tom Ransome who is Lady Esketh old flame. Also in this movie Maria Ouspenskaya is The India Prime Minister she was in Tarzan and Wolf man. So there are so many good actors in this movie and the sum all adds up to one excellent movie, 5 stars

    High gloss drama with, for the time, first class special effects. Myrna somewhat surprisingly plays a selfish slut, a high class slut but a slut nonetheless, at least in the beginning redeemed by love and hardship. Tyrone Power although not at all believable as an Indian is capable and sincere. Even the customarily stolid George Brent after some initial stiffness is better and more relaxed than usual. Excellent production values and a first rate supporting cast make this an entertaining winner.

    Typically classic hollywood, not bad though.
