I was very pleasantly surprised to see this movie on the TCM channel. The movie has an excellent cast, story, acting, and special effects which are awesome even in this age of "Lord of the Rings". Also, being of Indian origin, I thought it was quite a decent depiction of India of those days. (They portrayed the British military as benevolent but that could be forgiven considering that a truer depiction would shift the focus away from the individual dramas in the plot. I also wish that they featured a true Indian song at the music school instead of something which was highly westernized, perhaps operatic.) I liked the plot for placing such an emphasis on values, redemption, and forgiveness. And thank goodness for the sensibilities of that era - they did not explicitly show a single corpse amid all the floods, earthquakes, and a plague!
the Rains Flowed
Ms Loy good in her part,but think it was more a Merle Oberon part,Brent great,Powers should have let Baz Rathbone have this part,what with Willie Bruce as the old hubby.Would've made this better film

If there was a "bad" movie released in this glorious year - I haven't seen it. However, in "The Rains Came" - Loy looks "ragged" and Power is miscast but Brent (who finally decides to give a good facsillme of acting and the future to be Jane in Tarzan movies, Branda Joyce, give a smashing good performance when the Rains do come! Kudo's to Clarence Brown!
The Rains Came
- Dashiell Barnes
Loy, Power & Brent lead an all- star cast in this thrilling film.The flood & earthquake scenes are nothing short of outstanding. However, the story can be confusing & something missing that will leave viewers empty. To sum up, a good film to see once in a while. I give it a 3/5.
Este filme mostra que Myrna Loy era uma grande atriz e não somente um rosto bonito. Interpretando seu papel com intensidade e paixão.
Kudo's to Brent & Joyce...
- Steven Paul
for their performance's in their respective roles! Ms. Loy looks absolutely stunning when she is laying in the hospital bed!
The Starpower is there!

If antyhing this film has starpower. With the likes of Power, Loy, Brent and Ouspenskaya you know you have to see it just to say you did. A bit slow and like the reader below said, not the best movie, but good enough to catch at least once.
It's obvious that Kay Francis and Marlene Dietrich were the top contenders for the "Lady Edwina" part, and both actresses would have been superb in the part. But if anyone had to take their place and make it their own, Myrna Loy does it best. This isn't usually her kind of part, but she transforms herself into a more glamorous leading lady on the Francis/Dietrich level. It's a great film, maybe not the best, but certainly great.
